Put your hands up and surrender as noughties singer-songwriter Dido is set to perform at the Ipswich Regent.

Ahead of the release of her fifth album Still On My Mind on March 8, Dido has announced a UK tour in November and December 2019 with a date in Ipswich on Thursday, December 5.

The album combines a variety of styles and genres, ranging from hip hop to folk, but ultimately the record has a dance and electronic music style.

Dido said: “It was made in such an easy way, all the vocals recorded on the sofa, a lot of it recorded at home.

“I wanted to capture the feeling I still get from listening to music, just that rush like you don’t need anything more than this.

“It was an absolutely magical experience.”

The record follows the 2013 release of the acclaimed Girl Who Got Away, with lead single Hurricanes released at the end of last year, which already has nearly two million plays on Spotify.
