Girl Who Got Away
Released On: Mar 26, 2013
Released By: RCA Records
Dido, one of the world’s best-selling female recording artists of all time, returns with her strongest album yet entitled, Girl Who Got Away. Dido has recently released the album's standout single "No Freedom" as well as the critically-lauded track “Let Us Move On," featuring a razor-sharp guest spot from rapper Kendrick Lamar. The album finds her working once again with her brother Rollo Armstrong, who produced the majority of the tracks. Dido also collaborated with a “who’s who” of hit makers including Brian Eno, Jeff Bhasker, Rick Nowels and Greg Kurstin to create an album of finely, self-penned songs and soul-baring pop with electro, folk, hip hop, ambient and dance infusions.
Girl Who Got Away is a captivating collection of well-crafted songs and stunning production from the euphoric “Go Dreaming,” to the album's title track which Dido shares: "It's one of my favorite songs on the record," she says. “...but I guess it also sums up the last few years for me. Taking a step back from it all and going off to have the whole happy adventure of starting a family and making an album that I really am so proud of. And now I just can't wait for people to hear it."
She continues; “It was an incredibly fun record to make. There was no pressure on me at all. It’s all been so natural and easy. On every other record I’ve made, there have been really tricky days, but there weren’t any like that on this one.”
