He has now opened up further in a new post, saying that although he knows his fans want new music, "nothing comes before my family and my health".

He said: "So I read a lot of messages saying you want an album.

"I've toured my whole teenage life, and early 20s, I realized and as you guys probably saw I was unhappy last tour and I don't deserve that and you don't deserve that, you pay money to come and have a lively energetic fun light concert and I was unable emotionally to give you that near the end of the tour.
