The singer-songwriter told BBC 6 Music he wanted to play shows covering other people's material.
He's not the first to undertake such a project this year. Supergrass offshoot Hot Rats have also been playing cover-only live sets.
"I seem to spend a lot of time talking about starting a covers band at the moment, which I'm thinking of doing with a couple of friends."
He added, "We've done a lot of music over the past year, we've written a lot and I think we are coming to the end of a phase of that I suppose. Maybe it's time to stop writing for a bit as strange as that sounds sometimes you need to collect your thoughts a bit before writing so I think a covers band might be fun."
He admitted, however, the project was still in the planning stages. As for who will be in the covers band, the Londoner said: "It's gonna be my friend Joe singing, me playing the guitar and I don't know past then. I'm still working on it."
The Londoner's second album 'King and Queens' made it to number two in the UK album charts when it was released earlier this year.
