All about the Album: British singer Dido comes back with “Girl Who Got Away”

Some songs are not about what people think they are. Dido’s “Don’t Leave Home” is such a song. It’s from her second album “Life For Rent” and most people consider it a lovesong. It’s not. It’s about drugs. “Don’t Leave Home” shows how carefully British singer Dido is writing her lyrics and melodies. The latter most of the time as sweet as possible. The words sometimes very heavy. The music world missed her. But now she’s back.

It’s her new album “Girl Who Got Away” that actually puts her back into the spotlight. It will be out in March, so the transatlantic diablog gives you a roun-up of what we know so far.

1. The first single we’ve heard from the new album is “No Freedom”. Here’s the video (below, too). Here are the lyrics. Tracklist of the single.
