The English hitmaker Dido is set to return with her first album in five years. Titled Still On My Mind, it’s due for release on March 8th through BMG.

The forthcoming effort serves as Dido’s fifth overall and follow-up to Girl Who Got Away, the 2013 LP which featured producers Jeff Bhasker and Greg Kurstin. Much of Still On My Mind was written and recorded in England as “a result of the fruitful and incredibly natural production/songwriting partnership” with brother Rollo, who contributed extensively to all of her previous releases.

“It was simple, I only wanted to make another album if it was with him,” the 46-year-old Grammy-nominated singer noted in a statement. “It was made in such an easy way, all the vocals recorded on the sofa, a lot of it recorded at home.”

Still On My Mind is said to carry a “dance and electronic music sensibility,” an ambiance that can be heard on its spiraling, synthpop-leaning lead single, “Hurricanes”. Hear it for yourself below.

In support of the new album, Dido has already mapped out her first tour in 15 years, which includes a North American run in June. Along with new material off Still On My Mind, her setlist is expected to include smash singles like No Angel cut “Here With Me” and “White Flag”, taken from 2003’s Life For Rent.
