Florence Welch wants her bandmates to don shaman's robes when recording her next album.

The Florence and the Machine singer is fascinated by religion, the occult and spiritualism and thinks it would be "fun" if her interests were represented when she returns to the recording studio.

She told the Daily Star newspaper: "It would be fun to get shaman robes for everyone while we're recording.

"So everyone - the whole band - gets dressed for work, puts on their big robe, and comes down to the studio.

"I love seances, witchcraft, heaven and hell, voodoo, gospel, possession, demons, exorcism and all that stuff.

"I'm not a religious person. Sex, violence, love, death, all the topics that I'm constantly wrestling with, it's all connected back to religion."

Florence, 24, is currently writing in both the UK and US with old friend Isabelle 'Machine' Summers because she goes a "bit nuts" if she tries to do it alone.

She admitted: "I think it's important to work with people you know who know my process.

"I find I get a bit nuts if I do it all by myself, I need somebody to bounce off.

"I'm going to do the writing then we'll record it as a band."
