Dido Got Off Her Ass And Made An Album

That's right—Dido's back, with only her third album in nine years! I thought her first album was D'luvvly, but I'm still not forgiving this broad for taking part in that abominable "Do They Know It's Christmas 2004" single.

Safe Trip Home is out November 4, and is produced by Jon Brion, The Ark and Dido's brother Rollo Armstrong.

In the grand tradition of all overblown, self-righteous artists, a free track from the album called "Look No Further" is available now from her website. A free song? Fuck you, Dido!!

First official single "Don't Believe In Love" will be released later, whenever she gets around to it.

    No! No! No! D'Luv digs Dildo.

    I'm going to try my very best to get you off this musical crack buddy.

    I recently broke out Dido's last album, which I thought was really good. So, I'm excited she'll finally be putting another one out!

    Apparently so did Grace Jones.

    (If you've already written about it, I missed it while on vacation. Sorry.)

    it's about freaking time! love that girl. i actually thought "life for rent" was stronger than her debut. alas, the market has changed so much since her last album. i hope the public is forgiving of her absence. "white flag" will forever be one of my fave songs of all time.

    Not Dear Dido,

    Go stick a dildo up your arse and leave us the fuck alone.

    We were happy when you left... why are you back? We didn't miss you. Go away.

    First album was fab, I'll give her that. But doesn't that album title, "Safe Trip Home," say oh-so much about what to expect on the record?

    Rollo always delivers the goods (um, hello, Felix "Don't You Want Me" etcetera!) so at least I'll know what he does will be great.
