In total, the band have released 14 chart-topping singles, including My Love, World of Our Own, Unbreakable, You Raise Me Up and the hugely successful cover version of the Billy Joel song Uptown Girl.

Ahead of her sold out Olympia Theatre Dublin show this May, Dido has announced a huge headline show at 3Arena Dublin, where she will play songs from the new album alongside her classic megahits such as Thank You, Here With Me, White Flag and Life For Rent.
The multi-million selling singer has also announced her first new album in five years, the stunning ‘Still On My Mind’ out March 8th on BMG.
‘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.
‘It was simple, I only wanted to make another album if it was with him’ says Dido. ‘It was made in such an easy way, all the vocals recorded on the sofa, a lot of it recorded at home’. It follows the 2013 release of the acclaimed ‘Girl Who Got Away’.
Dido describes the making of this new album as “an absolutely magical experience”. She says: “I wanted to capture the feeling I still get from listening to music, just that rush like you don’t need anything more than this”.
With sales of more than 40 million albums worldwide, Dido is one of the best- selling UK artists ever. Both ‘No Angel’ and its 2003 follow-up, ‘Life For Rent’, still rank among the UK’s biggest-selling albums of all-time.
DIDO AT 3Arena, Dublin: 1 December, 2019.
