The `Go` hitmaker admits he hasn`t always enjoyed life on the road because it takes him so far away from everyday life, though he insists he is grateful for the opportunities he has.
He said: "There`ve been times when I`ve hated touring. I mean, I`m not complaining. I once worked as a dishwasher in a shopping mall in Conneticut, where I never saw any daylight. That was worth complaining about.
"I now get to make music for a living, which is obviously a good position to be in.
"But there have been times when I`ve felt so distant, so removed from the rest of humanity, that I`ve forgotten what it is like to be normal."
The 45-year-old star admits his hectic touring schedule has meant his relationships have suffered, but he is hoping to change his ways after his next stint on the road.
He explained: "Touring is like joining the French Foreign Legion. Rather than work on a relationship, I tend to just disappear for a year.
"It`s something I need to work on. I`m about to go out on tour for around six months but after that, my aim is to build some semblance of a normal existence and essentially do what other people do; wash dishes, look after the garden, go to the store, all that stuff."
