ABC/Donna SvennevikFlorence Welch is dreaming of bringing a stage production to London?s West End. The Florence + the Machine frontwoman says that she?s hoping to take some time off after the group's tour wraps up to work on a musical with her old school friend, Sophie Hart-Walsh.
"We always used to write songs about our lives and sing them to each other,? Welch tells the London Evening Standard. "We always said we should make them into a musical." The singer adds that her ?dream goal? is to get the forthcoming show into London's West End theaters.
Welch notes that even if she doesn?t write a musical, she still plans on taking a hiatus at the end of the band?s current touring cycle in December. ?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 explains. ?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.?
In other Florence + the Machine news, the band has just released the video for "Lover to Lover," the next single from the band's sophomore album, Ceremonials. The storyline follows Welch as she goes through an emotional break up with her boyfriend, played by Killing Them Softly actor Ben Mendelsohn.
