New Dido "Girl Who Got Away"

Out this week in the U.K., and then out in the U.S. late March. Fantastic album. Has a very electronic feel. Plus she looks great!

DIDO: "Greatest Hits" 11/25/13

Dido Reminisces on 'Greatest Hits,' Teaming with Eminem for 'Stan'

Full Interview
http://www.billboard.com/articles/co...minem-for-stan

How did you go about selecting the tracks to go on the album?

It wasn't a struggle. I struggled more with the remix album, because there were so many remixes that I loved. It was hard to fit them all on. And I wanted to include some that people had never heard. There were some Timbaland remixes that no one had ever heard before and then there were some new remixes, like a Mantronix mix of "Go Dreaming," a mix of "Blackbird" by Moguai. I wanted go get all that on. On the main album, I kept it simple. I basically picked singles and songs I love and kept it in chronological order. Then I added a few collaborations to really represent the whole era.

What about the compilation's never-before-heard track, "NYC"? When did you compose that one?

I wrote that with Greg Kurstin the same time I wrote (2013's) "End of Night," "Happy New Year, and "Let's Runaway," and saved it because I didn't finish it. And I actually thought this was the perfect album for it to go on, because it references lyrically when I first started and first came to America. I came over to New York with a point to prove to my brother (producer Rollo Armstrong) who basically said, "You can't do this." I was walking the streets of New York thinking, "I'm not going home until something happens, and I won't go home until I've walked every street in this town." I thought this was the perfect album to put it on, as opposed to the next record.

So you got a letter asking for your permission to use "Thank You"?

Yeah, I just got a letter saying, "We heard your track. We love it. We'd like to use it for this track 'Stan.' Can you take a listen? I hope you like it and can we use your song?" It was completely out of the blue. I put it on like, "I wonder what he could have done." You just don't know. And I was a big Eminem fan, so it was pretty cool. And then I heard it. I remember because I had some friends staying in the same hotel. They were literally running down the hall, like "You gotta listen to this; it's just brilliant!"


Here's the tracklist from "Greatest Hits," due Nov. 25 via RCA:

1. Here With Me

A friend of mine DJ'd a couple of scratches for some of her tunes. Don't know which ones. She's still hot.
