Singer-songwriter Katie Melua is back on tour again

Katie Melua has described how she is doing things differently after suffering a breakdown.

The singer-songwriter, how has sold more than 10 million albums since shooting to stardom as a teenager, had a brief stay in hospital last year and had to postpone concerts.

She said: "I think what happened was a culmination of everything that's gone over the past seven years. Pretty much.."

The 26-year-old, who has now resumed her postponed tour, added: "I'm doing things differently since I've come back, trying to keep a lot more chilled and making sure I've got my family around.

"I need to realise it's just a job, and it doesn't have to eat you alive. Yes, it's a great position to be in, but it doesn't mean you have to drive yourself crazy with hard work. I need to just enjoy it a bit more."

Katie, whose concerts, in support of her fourth album The House, comes to the UK on April 22, added: "At the moment, I just want to get the tour done.

"I really felt like I had to do this. It's a testament to myself to get it over and done with because it was so harrowing having to postpone the gigs last year."
