Dido reveals details of Safe Trip Home LP


Story by Jack Foley

UK SONGSTRESS Dido will release her highly anticipated third album, Safe Trip Home, on November 18.

The first single, Don’t Believe In Love, is currently available for download and was recently featured on TV’s 90210 (an updated version of Beverley Hills 90210 in the US). It’s also released physically into stores on October 27.

But ahead of the album’s release, there’s plenty going on as Dido seeks to raise awareness.

In one interesting initiative, film directors from around the world have been invited to make a series of short films to spotlight each of the album’s 11 songs.

Filmed at locations though out the globe (Mumbai, Rio, Bangkok and more), each film will examine a day in life of people in different countries. Trailers for the first four films can be viewed online HERE

In the coming weeks, Dido will also host upcoming listening parties outside of London and Los Angeles, where Safe Trip Home will be played its entirety. Afterwards, she will meet fans.

Safe Trip Home is currently available for digital pre-order from the iTunes® Store and customers who pre-order it will instantly receive Dido’s new single, Don’t Believe In Love.

Two digital versions are available through iTunes: a standard and a deluxe that features bonus content. The deluxe version contains three bonus tracks For One Day, Summer and a remixed version of Northern Skies, a video for Don’t Believe In Love, digital liner notes, plus the pre-orders-only track The Day Before The Day 5/4.

Recorded in Los Angeles and London, Safe Trip Home is produced by Jon Brion (Fiona Apple, Kanye West, Rufus Wainwright, Eels). It also features Dido playing guitar, piano, bells and the trusty recorder she toured Europe with as a prodigious pupil of London’s Guildhall School of Music.

She’s even responsible for some of the album’s drums (most notably on the melancholy Quiet Times). The album also includes Grafton Street, a song Dido co-wrote with Brian Eno.
