Dido has signed with BMG and will release her fifth album in 2019.
It is only the second record deal Dido has signed in her career, during which she has sold more than 30 million albums.
The singer was previously on BMG during its major label incarnation and merger with Sony. She has two of the biggest-selling albums in the UK: No Angel (3,094,537 OCC sales) and Life For Rent (2,896,649 OCC sales).
Dido co-wrote and co-produced the new album with her brother and fellow BMG artist, Rollo Armstrong, of Faithless.
BMG UK president, repertoire and marketing, Alistair Norbury, said: “We are thrilled to partner with Dido for her new album. She is the quintessential BMG artist; an international icon who is returning after five years with an outstanding record.”
“Dido has the rare ability to combine an art sensibility and a distinctive viewpoint on contemporary issues with infectious melodies which touch millions. Her new album will be one of the music highlights of 2019.”
Dido said: “I couldn’t be happier to sign to BMG, their enthusiasm and passion for the record was evident from day one”.
