Dido gets ‘personal’ on album

Dido says she can’t wait for her new music to be released because she is “more confident” now.

Dido says her new album reflects her “confidence” as an artist.

The British singer-songwriter is in the middle of recording her Greatest Hits album. She insists every track on the LP was carefully chosen, and she’s proud of the result.

“I never put stuff out that I don’t like," Dido told UK newspaper The Mirror. "I’m just way more confident now and I know what my strengths are.”

The singer made her comeback on stage with Eminem at the Reading Festival this summer. She says her new Greatest Hits album is something special, especially because she trusted her instincts every step of the way.

“There’s new stuff, old stuff,” Dido explained.

“It was definitely a personal thing. A lot of people had a lot of opinions about what should go on there and I was like, ‘Do you know what? It’s my album.’ I’m not listening to you.”

The White Flag star says if an opportunity came up to collaborate with another artist she would take it. While she doesn’t have anyone particular in mind, it’s something she always keeps an open mind about.

“I think always. There’s always things that you want to do,” Dido admitted. “It’s not like I’ve got a wishlist but things come up and you think, ‘You know what, this would be perfect.’”
