One way Dido has decided to bring the tracks for this album to life is by inviting film directors from around the world to make a series of short films to spotlight each of the album’s 11 songs. Filmed at locations throughout the globe (Mumbai, Rio, Bangkok and more), each film will examine a day in the life of people in different countries. Trailers for the first four films can be viewed online at the Safe Trip Home YouTube Site.
