In December of the same year, the 29-year-old musician announced that he’s taking a break from making music. “Hello all. Gonna go on another break again,” he told his fans and followers on Instagram.

“The Divide era and tour changed my life in so many ways, but now it’s all over it’s time to go out and see some more of the world,” he explained. “I’ve been a bit non stop since 2017 so I’m just gonna take a breather to travel, write and read. I’ll be off all social media until it’s time to come back.”
