Safe Trip Home was released in 2008, with a more acoustic and orchestral ambience. She got married in 2008 and a son, Stanley, was born in 2011. Dido went on to release one more album, Girl Who Got Away, in 2013, but once again opted not to take it on the road.
And now she’s back with her fifth album, Still On My Mind. Released in March 2019, the album wafts in like a beautiful breeze, a chilled out tumble of sadness and joy, melancholy and bliss. Still On My Mind is only Dido’s fifth album in 20 years. And it is right up there with her best work.
Dido also announced that she would tour for the first time in 15 years. “I love this album,” she says. “It’s been an absolutely magical experience making it. And I want people to hear it. So I think it’s time to go out there again.”
