Florence Welch To Take Break From Music

Singer longs for quieter life

Florence Welch is to take a break from music when her tour with band Florence + The Machine ends in December.

The 26-year-old singer's schedule has been so hectic for the last five years she's not much time off to spend time with her friends and family and carry out normal daily tasks.

She told the London Evening Standard: “I've been on tour since I was 21. I need a break and to have the chance to do normal things, like go to the supermarket and hang out with my friends.

“I've only just moved out of my mum's house, so I'd like to settle into my new place and start getting inspired again. If I started writing songs now, all they'd be about is tour buses and hotel rooms.”

And during her time off Florence hopes to write a musical with her best time from school, Sophie Hart-Walsh.

She said: “We always used to write songs about our lives and sing them to each other. We always said we should make them into a musical.”
