Dido returns to the music scene with her fourth studio album, "Girl Who Got Away," after being away from the spotlight for five years.
The singer-songwriter has kept herself busy in that time by having a son, Stanley, in 2011 with husband Rohan Gavin.
The "White Flag" singer said she was nearly finished with making "Girl Who Got Away" before she got pregnant. After taking a little break, she pulled the record together at the end of last year.
SOUNDBITE Dido saying (English):
"I loved singing when I was pregnant. There was a newspaper article that managed to pick the one bit where they said, 'but was it really hard in the beginning?' And I was like, 'yeah I felt really sick.' I ate a lot of egg sandwiches and thought I was going to throw up. But what I actually said was how much I loved singing when I was pregnant, later on. The first few months were definitely tricky, because you're singing and feeling like you're going to be sick and it was quite hard. But I loved feeling him kicking around while I was singing and certain songs he'd really kick to. It just felt like I had a little friend in there with me."
Dido said the meaning of the lyrics in the title track and the album's name alluded to her five-year absence.
"Girl Who Got Away" releases on March 26.
