Ben Howard admits he was indecisive about his forthcoming second album because he didn't want his fans to get tired of the long tracks

Ben Howard was "racked with indecision" over his new album.

The 'Only Love' hitmaker wanted to record longer songs for his forthcoming second LP, but he admits he was hesitant about it for a while beforehand because he didn't want people to get bored of it.

Speaking to radio station XFM, he said: "All the songs are really long, it might just get tiring for people! I'll probably do a short pop record next time. But it seemed like the right thing to do.

"I didn't think too much about it. Then there were times when I thought way too much about it. I was kind of supremely confident then racked with indecision for the whole the winter. The whole record's really skitty and undecided - it feels like I've kind of lost my brain a bit!"

The 27-year-old hunk insists he'll be touring the album "quite heavily" in the near future because the songs featured on it, he believes, sound better played live.

He said: "There's talk of European tours sometime at the back end of the year. It's very much a live thing this record, so we'll be touring it quite heavily I think."

Ben released his preview track 'The End Of The Affair' last night (05.08.14) and his album will follow shortly.
