Dido Releases New Single ‘Give You Up’ Out Now From Forthcoming Album ‘Still On My Mind’ Ahead Of World Tour

Having sold more than 40 million albums worldwide, Dido’s forthcoming album, ‘Still On My Mind’, set for release on March 5, is her first in five years, and one of the most highly anticipated releases this year. Preceding the album, she’s dropped several singles, and the latest is ‘Give You Up’, out now on BMG.

‘Give You Up’, written by Dee Adams in collaboration with Australian duo, The Opposite Kids, is incredibly empowering and emotional. Speaking about it Dido said,

“It’s just so perfect. 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 the singer’s fifth studio album, and was written and recorded entirely in the UK. It’s the latest result of the long production/songwriting partnership between her and her brother, Faithless founder, Rollo.

To promote the album’s release, Dido will undertake a world tour throughout 2019, including the following dates in the UK and Ireland this May:

Sun 26th Glasgow, Royal Concert Hall SOLD OUT
Mon 27th Dublin, Olympia Theatre SOLD OUT
Wed 29th Manchester, Albert Hall SOLD OUT
Thur 30th London, The Roundhouse SOLD OUT
Fri 31st London, The Roundhouse SOLD OUT
