Florence Welch feels no pressure recording her new album.

The Florence and the Machine singer has promised her forthcoming LP will be different to her debut 'Lungs' because she's got "more ground to cover" but insists she wasn't worried about living up to the success of her first record.

She said: "The new stuff I'd call kind of dancey, but it's dark as well.

"I don't feel pressurised at all. The live situation is similar to the record situation - I felt pressure towards the first album. The second feels like a release - I've got new ground to cover - whereas the first was scary. The next year is just me moving on and creating something new, a clean slate to do whatever you want - so what isn't there to like about that?"

Despite insisting she isn't worried, the flame-haired singer is hopeful her new work will be as successful as the last album now she has simplified her production and song-writing.

She added: "It needs to be more contained. With the first album, I was excited that people wanted to work with me, so I worked with as many people as possible just to see what I could come up with. It ended up like a patchwork."
