In an interview published in The Western Mail today, Nefyn singer Duffy says she nearly quit the music business as her career went stratospheric.



"I missed the simple things in life. Life had got so complicated. I needed time to step back and relax," she says.

"I occasionally longed for the finer things I used to experience which is being on an empty beach in north Wales, walking with only myself and my thoughts for miles around, but that being said, I never have any regrets.

"I forgot for a while what my job was, what my role was. I'm not a model. I'm not a celebrity. So who am I?"

Existential crises were eventually put aside by Duffy as she started work on her second album with American songwriter Albert Hammond. Endlessly is out the week after next.
