Susan Boyle says recording studios are her "Sanctuary".

The Scottish singing sensation - who shot to fame after competing on UK TV star-search show 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2009 - feels safe and stress-free when she is setting down new tracks as it gives her some peace away from the pressures of fame.

She said: "The studio is my sanctuary. To return to it, well it Feels Like Home away from home. The studio is like being inside a bubble and a place I can step away from the worry of life. As soon as I put the cans (headphones) on I know that I am safe."

Susan, 49, has sold millions of records around the world but insists she isn't concerned about chart positions or record sales so long as people continue to enjoy her music.

She added to the Korean Times newspaper: "It's a bit breathtaking, you know.

"For me, it's not about album sales or chart positions. It is that the people buying my music are enjoying it. They are the ones who will hopefully keep me in this business for years to come. I don't want it to end and I want them to keep enjoying my music."
