A new Dido album is always a big event as the haunting singer does not release many. Luckily you can now get your hands on Girl Who Got Away, her first album since 2008’s top 10 hit Safe Trip Home and only her fourth since she burst on to the scene in 1999 with No Angel. Having originally found fame collaborating with Eminem, she has again worked with some of today’s hottest talent including US rapper Kendrick Lamar. The 11 tracks on Girl Who Got Away were once again written and produced in collaboration with her brother, Faithless founder Rollo Armstrong, and are a beautiful mix of contemplative, sad and defiant songs. She may well have gone away for a while but Dido’s definitely back with this timeless new CD release.
