Florence Welch, the titular voice behind Florence + the Machine, is ready for a break.
The singer says she’s tired of touring as part of the band, and wants to write a musical. “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,” she told The Evening Standard.
Another “normal thing” Flo would like to do: Write a musical. A friend of the singer told the Standard that they have many songs which are prime for staging.
While Welch may want to put down the microphone for a spell, she’s not exactly staying home alone. Recent reports have linked her to Sean Penn, the actor 26 years her senior.
