Matt Bellamy plans to retire from music and become a hemp farmer.

The Muse frontman - who owns a sprawling farm in Devon - wants to transform the land into a factory to make paper and material from the plant.

The millionaire musician says when he eventually stops touring he will also spend his time sheep shearing.

Matt - who is dating Hollywood actress Kate Hudson - said of his farm: "I don't live there, it's just land with a couple of jaded barns that need to be renovated. It's a nice place to camp but my long-term plan is to grow industrial hemp for making paper and material.

"When I stop touring I'm going to hang around there and start shearing sheep."

The 32-year-old musician is already using the land as a sheep farm with a flock of 50 ewes and two rams.

He added to The Sun newspaper: "As we speak, I'm letting the rams loose on the ewes.

"I got the sheep mainly because I've got a farm which has a lot of steep hills, so the grass gets out of control unless you get grazing animals in there - and it was too steep for cows.

"I've got Dorset Downs sheep - they're hardy, they can handle the weather."

This is not the first time Matt has spoken about his need for a break from touring, saying he sometimes thinks about living in a tent on his own.

The rocker - who grew up in Devon and is currently touring Australia -said: "I might just live in a tent on my own farm somewhere, isolated with a shotgun.

"It definitely feels like we've got to a certain level as a live band. So it could be time to take a break, back off for a bit and see if anybody misses us."
