Olly Murs revealed his plans to find a "give it a break" and find a less demanding job if his latest record 'You Know I Know' doesn't have chart success

Olly Murs' new album "could be his last" if his fans lose interest in him.

The 34-year-old singer has revealed he will "give it a break" and step away from the music business if his new album 'You Know I Know' isn't a chart hit.

In an interview with the Metro newspaper, he said: "I will continue until people get bored of me if it ends it ends. I am under no illusion that this album could be my last, I say that every album, you never know ... If this album only goes to ten then I know it's time to give it a break."

Olly – who shot to fame on 'The X Factor' in 2009 – believes that fans can tell whether an artist is excited about creating a new album and if they are "not really bothered" as it comes across in the music.

He said: "If you are doing an album and you are not really bothered I think people can feel that. If you are bothered and excited like, 'Yeah I am f***ing pumped!' Then your fans feel that buzz."

The 'Trouble' hitmaker has been open about his desire to settle down and have children, and when he eventually becomes a father, wants to spend as much time at home as possible.

He said: "When I have a family and kids, the last thing I want to be doing is working ridiculous stupid hours.

"So there might be a point of slowing down and having a regular job that's Monday to Friday or whatever job I can get...if I can get a job where I can be at home a lot more to be with my kids and do school runs."
