^But Kylie did an extensive promo and I'm not sure Dido is willing to the same. Especially because she'll go on tour two months after the album release...

I like that Sophie is the director. She did a great job with Life for Rent video 8-)

The two songs she released so far are great. :D
Mariah saved Xmas and Gaga is saving Pop and Hollywood.

Listening this song now for the first time, it's piano ballad. Weakest song out of 3 so far.

They are making same mistake again. This song won't do anything, and it sure won't sell the album. Why releasing No Freedom 2.0

It's not instant, but I like it more than No Freedom on the first listen <3 I think it's a grower :)

well, both Thank You and White Flag were ballads and both gave her global star status so I really hope this will remind people how good singer she is. II haven't heard it yet but I am really rooting for her this time

The song is a total grower. I think it's so beautiful and is so relatable for many people that had a heartbreak or had to say goodbye to someone or something. I think the GP would dig this if they play the right cards. Also if they had promo lined up it's a perfect song to play live and would help to the album sales more than the single itself.
Let's see how it works, it will clearly not be a top 40 hit but i see the song being consistent like "Sit Next To Me" by Foster The People or "Praying" by Kesha.

I like it, but I think it’s a little bit weak as a single.

It does show off Didos voice however Hurricanes and Friends is better and more catchy. Friends is radio friendly so they should have sent that to radios. This song will do nothing I'm afraid.

I like this song more with each listen <3 It reminds me of Girl Who Got Away track which was one of the best on the last album

She has one of those voices that transports me to another place, it's very ethereal - I was a massive fan of the Life for Rent album and I'm always reminded of that era whenever I listen to a Dido song.

I adore Give You Up - beautiful piano-led ballad with gorgeous vocals (I think it's Give You Up - Spotify has it has Hurricanes).

Very much fixed now, I thought it was a funny way of promoting the song :P It will probably be out on Friday. Great song, she rarely does something piano-led, so I'm very happy. I can clearly feel her love for Sarah McLachlan and it also reminds me a bit of RHODES who I also admire. It's very comforting, so you can keep on listening on and on. For me, it's a good choice for lead single, reminds me a bit of what they did during GWGA (Let Us Move On, Blackbird, No Freedom = Hurricanes, Friends, Give You Up). If others think GYU is sort of weak, I guess the tour will make for it. I really like it, though :)
