Awkward. But the plot thickens. Googled a bit with more info and I can't find full credits for the song, but the Wiki page on LP says:

In June 2011, LP co-wrote "Afraid to Sleep", which was performed by NBC's The Voice finalist Vicci Martinez and reached #10 on the iTunes Top Singles Chart.
It doesn't say who she co-wrote it with though.

Dido composed the song, while Billy Steinberg wrote the lyrics. Since Dido decided not to include the track to "No Angel" album, nor to record it properly, the song remained unreleased, so Billy just recycled the lyrics. He is credited as a co-writer, but since the melody was completily changed, Dido is not listed as an author. It was not ok to present it as an original song though.

Hey, that song Sister Bliss made part of a playlist is now avaliable on Spotify and iTunes under the name of R&D (Rollo & Dido anyone?!). The song is Cards.
I'm loving it! :D 8-)

Not particularly. It's obviously Rollo's solo project and she's just providing vocals :lol:

I liked My Boy, Cards was quite forgettable.But production reminds me of Everything to Lose, and it's been 5 freaking years since we got last music so I have to listen it :lol:

Why are they doing this and not saying anything about tho

Two new remixes for My Boy were released today. They are quite good. I'm really liking the R & D project. I just hope we get an album or an EP. :D

I'll take anything at this point although I'm not a fan of their recent work. Dusted was much much better.
