After a four-plus year hiatus, Dido is releasing a brand new LP of original material today, a collection called Girl Who Got Away. The British songstress stopped by Big Morning Buzz Live this morning for a quick chat with Carrie Keagan, as well as to sing the album’s second single, “No Freedom.”
Dido first rose to prominence in the early aughts following the release of her debut album, No Angel. The album combined elements of both trip-hop and acoustic singer/songwriter stylings, which caught the ear of Eminem, who used Dido’s track “Thank You” for the hook of his massive hit, “Stan.” She went from a minor star in her native UK to a massive international phenomenon thanks to both Em and the 2003 album Life For Rent. She’s sold more than 29 million albums worldwide, and if this track is any indication, she’ll be adding a few million more to that total in no time whatsoever.
