Dido – No Freedom

I’ve been a huge fan of Dido’s music for a little over a year. She’s amazing, so is her music and with each studio album she’s gotten better and better. If the two recently released songs are anything to go by, I think it’s safe to say her fourth album – Girl Who Got Away, due to be released on March 4th – will be, at the very least, phenomenal.

Let Us Move On, a collaboration with Kendrick Lamar, was released in mid-December, but the lead single from this album, No Freedom, only made its debut today. To put it simply, it is brilliant. Although somewhat melancholic, the song is definitely more optimistic than most of the material from her last album, Safe Trip Home. Nonetheless, it stays true to the style adopted on her other albums. With well written lyrics, a catchy, sort of playful chorus and Dido’s amazing vocals – her voice is as sweet as ever -, everything comes together to form a great melt-in-your-mouth kind of song.

Basically, I love No Freedom. I love it. It’s great.

  1. I used to listen to Dido but it’s been a long time. I’ll have to check out her newer music.

    Hope you’ve been doing well!

    • Yes, definitely check out her 2008 album, ‘Safe Trip Home’, if you haven’t already. It’s so incredibly beautiful. 🙂

      I’ve been doing relatively well, yes. And you?

  2. Cool. I’ll be sure to check out the 2008 album. Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. Her voice and the song remind me a lot of Jini Mitchell.

    • Interesting point… I love Joni Mitchell’s ‘Blue’ album – the only one of hers I’ve listened to so far. But I’ve never associated the two singers. I feel their singing styles are different, though both beautiful.

      Thanks for visiting! 🙂
