"I feel so tired, it's awful!" Welch tells Spinner. "I don't drink so much on tour anyway so that's okay, but it's the caffeine that's addicting and not having Diet Coke is getting to me!"
Then there's the boozing. Florence and her machines apparently aren't Motley Crue when it comes to partying.
"We haven't been drunk in three, maybe four weeks, though, which really just means less blowouts."
Still, even with the chaos dialed back a bit for Welch's health, she admits that touring in general has its ways of messing up the her reality.
"Touring takes over everything and it's fucked," admits Welch. "I mean, it's really organized in every way possible, but you can't deal with anything; nothing gets dealt with in your real life and you only get to be home for two weeks at a time."
That being said, Welch is aware of these downsides to her career choice and just chalks it up to "the best and worst thing" about being a touring musician.
Another thing she has yet to focus on, due to constant touring, is a new album. Rest assured, though, the singer's been hard at work in her mind, even though no words or music have hit the paper yet.
Since releasing her second album, Ceremonials, last October, Welch has definitely noticed a change from album to album.
"I think the first record was desperate for something and clawing for things," says Welch. "Ceremonials was clawing internally, more towards myself than longing for someone. It was more of a battle inside as opposed to attacking something outside."
Welch didn't spill any details on what she might have lined up on her third record, but she does admit that she already has a good vision of it.
"I've been thinking about it a lot," reveals Welch. "I think I've written a whole album in my head."
