Los Angeles - Ellie Goulding took to Twitter on Thursday to reassure fans that she is not quitting music for good..
This comes after the 29-year-old singer recently announced that she will taking a break from music. She is currently travelling the world with her Delirium tour but revealed that once it finishes she is taking up to a year to "live a bit" after struggling with an overwhelming workload and the recent break-up of her relationship with Dougie Poynter.
I am not quitting music, I've come too far for that! Just having a break. It's been seven years since I had time off.... Love you all— Ellie Goulding (@elliegoulding) March 10, 2016

She said: "I'm not in a relationship anymore and that's been hard. Having a break will be a good thing for me and my head.
"I'm not writing new stuff. I'm not sure when I'll release a new album. It might not even be next year. I need time off for my own head.
"My plan is to have a month off in August and do more of my charity stuff and then next year I need to live a bit. Who knows? My situation has changed."
Ellie admitted she needs a break because her social life is practically non-existent after seven years of "non-stop" touring.
She told The Sun: "I've toured seven years non-stop. If you do too much of something, it can turn into something you feel like you have to do and it's not as enjoyable as it could be.
"I don't really have that much of a social life because of what I do. You tend to meet people just in this world."
Ellie follows in the footsteps of Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran, who are both taking a break to recharge.
