More on the new track “Chances” from the new album STILL ON MY MIND out March 8th:
Says Dido, “It’s called Chances and I wrote it for a friend who was having a hard time, to remind them tomorrow is another day and another chance.”
Check out the stunning new video for ‘Give You Up’ Shot in both Paris and London, the video is directed by Sophie Muller (Björk, Beyoncé, Radiohead, Blur) and perfectly encapsulates the pain of heartbreak. Watch the video for ‘Give You Up’ HERE
Incredibly empowering and moving, ‘Give You Up’ was written by Dee Adam, Si Hulbert and Australian duo The Opposite Kids (Denny Thakrar and Rob Agostini). “It’s just so perfect,” Dido said of the track. “It’s a good break up song, where you’ve been hurt but feel strong. It’s that point in a relationship where you are pulling yourself out of the gutter and deciding that it’s their loss. Which I can totally relate to.”
‘Still On My Mind’ is Dido’s 5th studio album and was written and recorded in England, a result of the fruitful and incredibly natural production/songwriting partnership with her long term collaborator and brother (Faithless founder) Rollo.
