DIDO : Here With Me
We remember first hearing this song after being sampled with it from her then label BMG more than ten years ago and it left us completely speechless. It was different, so new, so slick and polished, with that beautiful dusty vocal that we instantly fell in love with.
‘Here With Me’ was a bit too forward thinking for us Aussies and it wasn’t a mammoth hit here like it was in Dido’s native UK, where it hit the top five. That said, the album it came from (‘No Angel’) was a phenomenon, going on to sell more than 20 million copies around the world.
We’ve included the moody, dark original video here – which we feel suits the song far better than the reworked, bright, shiny, colourful version that features Dido strolling the streets of New York. Dido’s working on her new album and will be shying away from the stripped back, organic feel that affected sales of her last album ‘Safe Trip Home’.
