London: Singer Florence Welch is planning to take a year off from showbiz.

The Florence and the Machine front-woman, who recently celebrated her first UK number one hit, will be taking her time with her next record and plans to be out of the public eye for 12 months, reported Contactmusic.

"There`s a big `take a year off` plan. The record company has put no pressure on for the next album. They`ve said I can have as long as I want," Welch said.

The 25-year-old star said that she may make use of her time by hanging around in East London, where she likes to play a game called hipster safari.

"Nobody notices me in London. I think it`s because I don`t feel very starry when I go out. People expect me to be louder and wearing a huge bat-winged jumpsuit or something, but I`m quite quiet really. I like playing hipster safari," she added.
