The singer has revealed the reason she decided to take a self-imposed break from music is because she doesn`t want to play her pop character anymore.
Lily - whose first album `Alright, Still` came out in 2006 - said: "I just felt I`m at a point in my life where I need to be at home more. And not travelling the world and jumping up and down on stages... I`m just a bit fed up of the character that I`ve played for the past five years, at the moment."
Although she is on hiatus, Lily is currently working on a top secret musical project.
She added to British daytime ITV show `This Morning`: "I`m still working in music, I`m still writing music, maybe, for other people and I`m involved with trying to do a musical at the moment, that`s really exciting."
Lily says the best thing about being away from the music business is being able to live a more sedate life.
The 25-year-old pop star - who is dating builder Sam Cooper - explained: "I think I`ve been living life in an incredibly fast lane for the past five years. And I just feel the need to sit back and relax a little bit more. So many people in my position go a bit mad. Maybe that`s because they are pushing themselves a bit too hard. So this feels like almost the sensible thing to do; to step away from it."
