Singer/songwriter Dido is gearing up to release her first new album in five years.

The star took time out of the spotlight after her 2008 record Safe Trip Home and she became a mother to a baby boy in 2011.

However, Dido has also been using her down time to work on new material, and her new album, Girl Who Got Away, hits stores on 4 March (13).

She says, "It was an incredibly fun record to make. There was no pressure on me at all. It's all been so natural and easy. On every other record I've made, there have been really tricky days, but there weren't any like that on this one."
