Patrick Wolf is threatening to quit the music industry for good.

The singer has stated that he will play his final gig in November.

Posting on Patrickwolf.com the singer wrote: “I have made a decision, my final concert will be this November, a retrospective with an orchestra in London. I am not sure whether there will be anymore public communications after that.

“In fact I am pretty sure there will be none… A creative clock is ticking and I have many, many projects to be creating with my time left on this earth. I hope to share my last shows with you this year.”

Wolf hinted that the reasons for his decision to quit were based on the fact that he was exhausted from his promotional duties. He posted: “I don’t think when I was 16 and dreamt of releasing records there would ever be so much crazy speculation about the person I am and what you want me to be.

“I have become so tired of this behaviour, sometimes I wake up and have to do six hours of interviews before doing a show, then go straight to bed to sleep a couple of hours then fly to a new country to be cross-examined in the same way…I don’t know what is left of me.”

In the post, the singer added that he has fired his touring drummer.

This was because he "was causing arguments within my road family, taking sedative drugs before an important show in a city I really love, so much so he could not play the music I wrote, the songs that I have survived on in the last six years".

He added: "I was pissed off because this was just one more musician or businessman taking my good nature and generosity for a ride."

Wolf is set to release his album 'The Magic Position' in the US on May 1.
