The record is Dido's first studio album in six years, since 2013's Number 5-peaking Girl Who Got Away. Look back at Dido's complete Official UK Chart history here. She record Still On My Mind with her brother and longtime collaborator Rollo (of Faithless). "It was simple, I only wanted to make another album if it was with him," Dido said. "It was made in such an easy way, all the vocals recorded on the sofa, a lot of it recorded at home."

It's been even longer since Dido went out on the road, but she's fixed that with the announcement of her first world tour in 15 years. The shows kick off in Prague on May 4 and reaches the UK and Ireland on May 26, taking in Glasgow, Dublin, Manchester and London. Tickets go on sale on November 16.
