Dido has released a new single ‘Just Because’ on October 2, lifted from the upcoming deluxe version of her critically acclaimed comeback album after six years away, ‘Still On My Mind’. Her last studio album came back in 2013 with ‘Girl Who Got Away’. The special version of ‘Still On My Mind’ is set for a release date through BMG on November 15. This in turn led Dido to become the best selling UK solo female artist of the year.
The album also features acoustic renditions of ‘Thank You’ and ‘White Flag’, including a new track, ‘This Is Love’, and remixes by Mark Knight and Undercatt. The ‘Stan’ collaborator said in a statement about the new single ‘Just Because’, “An uplifting track with a really simple thought: be yourself, don’t bow to peer pressure or be afraid to go out on a limb, mess up or do things your own way. Be proud of who you are. I spent a lot of my life trying to fit in and it never worked anyway. This is about that.”
Dido is set to play a run of dates in the UK next month, as listed below. Among the dates include shows in Liverpool, Birmingham and Brighton. A later date on December 13 will see Dido performing in Dubai.
