Florence previously claimed she became more creative when she gave up drinking.

Shee said: "I'd gone through a lifestyle change -- as in, I'd had to stop drinking. I was a party monster and it was getting to the stage where I was just mashing myself to bits all the time.

"The scariest thing is, I used to think what made me creative was the fact I was a big hedonist. But towards the end, it was actually quite hard to make songs because I was in so much pain and all I was writing about was: 'How do I get out of this trap?'

"The theme of my writing was like: 'I'm stuck, I'm f*****, I don't know how to make this stop. Help, help, help!' "

By making a big lifestyle change, it meant a shift in Florence's songwriting and she was delighted that it has been accepted by her fans.

She explained: "I sort of stopped [the abuse] just before I made the track 'How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful.' To show people this side of yourself, which is so frightening to you, and for people to accept it with love, and to sing it with people, was a really big catharsis.

"So I just found that my brain was more open. I just kind of wrote it down and let it all go."
