Florence Welch: 'I'm taking a year off to write a musical'

Flame-haired songstress Florence Welch has revealed that she plans to take her 'Machine' on hiatus so that she has time to concentrate on other projects.

The Florence + The Machine frontwoman explained that she's now 26-years-old and has been touring since the age of 21 so it'll be great to have some time to herself finally:

"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.”

London's Evening Standard newspaper reports that she was a guest at the launch of 'Kate: The Kate Moss Book' and had taken childhood friend Sophie Hart-Walsh along, with whom she plans to write a musical and added:

"It would be amazing to get it into the West End. That’s obviously the dream goal.”

Hart-Walsh 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.”
