Florence And The Machine singer Florence Welch has said she is still keen to collaborate with Drake.

The pair were in talks earlier this year to do a duet on her forthcoming album 'Ceremonials', which is set for release on October 31.

But Welch has now revealed that they never managed to team up in the end despite the fact the rapper even picked out which song he wanted to appear on.

She told MTV.COM:

We haven't actually done any recording together. Whenever I see Drake we always just end up kind of hanging out, which is equally fun.


The singer added: "If we would have the time it is something I would definitely like to do, but we're both really busy."

Welch recently admitted that she quit drinking on tour during a support slot with U2 over the summer. She added: "I feel a bit more responsibility for my body and for the fans who come to see us. When we toured with U2 it was such a gruelling schedule and I had shows everyday and I can't do that with a hangover."
