And now he has told Apple Music that he would be willing to step away from music altogether if fame has too negative of an effect on his emotional state.

The famous musician told of the toll having daily panic attacks on stage took on him.

He said: “I think on this album in particular I talk a bit more about my mental health, which has taken a beating over the last little while.

“I’m managing it better now but I think in 2020 I was kind of glad when we got put in lockdown because I had done my first arena tour in the UK, and we had just done an Australia and Asia tour before that.

“I was in a bad way where I was just having panic attacks every single day on stage and I was just shy.

“I still haven’t quite got there, but it’s interesting that this thing that you love to do and you’ve always wanted to do becomes something that causes you such distress, but such is the modern world.

“I’ll take a few panic attacks and my Tourette’s and stuff for what’s happening, but if it gets to the point where things get worse mentally and I stop kind of looking after myself in that regard, I think that would be a point where I’d be like, ‘I’m just not going to do this anymore’.”

He also previously told a reporter at The Sunday Times that he will leave the music business if he cannot cope with his Tourette’s syndrome.

The star opens up about his struggles on tracks in his much-anticipated second album, Broken By Desire To Be Heavenly Sent, which came out yesterday.

Before the album was released he put out three singles which reached number 1 on UK music charts.

The West Lothian singer stripped off to celebrate his success in the run up to his album hitting the shelves.
