Florence Welch says she's a 'control freak'

Florence Welch has confessed she's never completely satisfied with her work.

The Florence + The Machine star's second album, Ceremonials, went to the top of the album chart when it was released last October.

But she revealed: "I think I'll always be slightly dissatisfied with my creative output. The idea of finishing something is terrifying to me, because to say it's finished means you think it's perfect, and nothing can ever be perfect."

The 25-year-old Londoner went on: "I'm a control freak, and I'm really proud of this record. It's one more step to get where I'm going. You know, chipping away at an idea.

"If I'd made the perfect album, I'd never make another one, so it has to be like this. I'm already thinking about the next one."

:: Florence + The Machine begin their UK tour on March 4 and their latest album Ceremonials is out now.
