Dido Has 'Everything To Lose' with 'Sex and The City 2' Soundtrack
Did you write Everything To Lose specifically for the movie?
A rough demo of 'everything to lose' was on a cd I gave to someone with a few demos of songs from the new album. The people doing the film heard it and loved it and so we had to suddenly finish it up in a couple of days last week to get it into the film in time. It's so exciting for me that people will be hearing it this quickly after I've done it and when it's still so fresh for me.
When/where did you record it?
Rollo, Sister Bliss and I all did our bits at home. I recorded my parts in the kitchen. It's a very easy and fun way to work and is how I've been making my new record so far. It challenges me more when I've only got myself to rely on when I'm recording on my own and I've been able to really go with my own instincts and experiment before anyone hears anything. I finished it off with my brother in the English countryside (hoping not too much bird and cow noise on there!).
Are you pleased with it?
I really am. It's a song that puts us all in a good mood. It's a true love song really, even though it's talking about that fear you can get when you actually really love someone and have finally got something real to lose. I love the sound of it and I've been having so much fun with working with Rollo and Sister Bliss on this album so far. I'm enjoying getting back to my electronic roots so much. Very happy! Hope you all like it too.
Make sure you keep checking Dido's official site for information on the song's premiere sometime in the next few days. While I really did love Dido's single "Don't Believe In Love," the album, Safe Trip Home didn't do it for me. I don't know. Maybe it was the more "organic" approach that she took during the recording/production phases of the album's creation. According to Dido, the new album will return to her electronic roots which leaves me optimistic. In my eyes, there's always room for Dido. I look forward to the new album and song.
