Florence Welch To Take Break From Music Industry

The Machine singer wants to use time to write musical with childhood friend.

Florence Welch has claimed she needs to take a break from the music industry before she returns to the studio.

Speaking to the Evening Standard, the singer explained that she needed rest from her constant touring schedule so she could be ‘inspired again’ for new material.

‘I’ve only just moved out of my mum’s house,’ Welch explained, ‘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.’

Welch also revealed that she was planning to write a musical with a childhood friend. ‘It would be amazing to get it into the World End. That’s obviously the dream goal,’ 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.’

Florence And The Machine are on tour throughout the UK and Ireland next month on the following dates:

04 Exeter Westpoint Arena
05 London 02 Arena
06 London 02 Arena
08 Coventry Ricoh Arena
09 Aberdeen AECC
10 Liverpool Echo Arena
12 Dublin 02 Arena
