"Hunter" is a song by British singer Dido released as the third single from No Angel, her debut album. "Hunter" went to the top ten on the World Adult Charts and top 20 on the UK Singles Chart while achieving top five success in Portugal and Greece. "Hunter" tells the tale of restlessness in a failing relationship and the singer's wish to be a "hunter", or unencumbered person, once again.

Music video[edit]

The video, directed by Matthew Rolston, takes place in the city during a night of the full moon. In the video, Dido is chasing her lookalike in the city. Intercut are scenes of Dido singing the song in a balcony, living room and also the underwater amusement park. The video ends with Dido catching up with her lookalike in a tunnel and both hugging and embracing each other.
