19th July 2009 - Album Number 4

For her next album (to be released in early 2010), Dido is planning to return to the more electronic sounds of her first two albums. Of last year's 'Safe Trip Home' album Dido said, "I intentionally didn't use any electronics on the 3rd album. It was a challenge that started as a small thought and then turned into a big theme of the record. We had a lot of fun creating sounds from all manner of instruments (bells, wind instruments, strings, brass, pots, pans, cans, sandpaper, anything). This was instead of using anything pre-programmed." And as for her new, currently untitled 4th album Dido said, "It was a great learning experience for me and also made me a much better musician pretty quickly! It's also making me really appreciate the joy of electronics again on this new album I'm making. It's good to take a break and now I'm celebrating my electronic roots again."
