Florence And The Machine singer fears for her career

Florence Welch thinks 'everything is about to cave in on me'

Florence And The Machine singer Florence Welch has revealed she is worried how long her career will last.

In a year that has seen her debut album ‘Lungs’ reach Number Two in the UK album charts and receive a Barclaycard Mercury Prize nomination, the singer says she is anxious about the future.

“I can’t ever seem to shake the feeling that when things are really good it essentially means that things are going to go really bad,” Welch told The List. “When I feel calm and settled, there is always an underlying feeling of impending doom. I don’t think that it’s healthy.”

About to embark on a tour of UK and Ireland, the singer also said she has faced the possibility that she might not remain as popular.

“I always seem to feel that everything is about to cave in on me,” she explained. “I think that maybe music is my protection from that and in some senses it’s an outlet to turn it into something euphoric: embracing the eventual decline.”

Currently topping the NME chart for a second week with their song ‘You’ve Got The Love’, the group are set to begin work on their next album early in 2010.
