Former The Darkness frontman Justin Hawkins will launch a solo career, after he has recovered from his split from the group, reports PR-Inside.
Hawkins left the band last month (October 6th), after winning a long battle with drink and drugs.
After his departure the flamboyant singer spoke of his plans to leave music behind and even considered a career in counselling. But the 31-year-old is now planning to go solo, once he has taken a break.
Hawkins says, "I'm enjoying the break.
"I'm planning on taking a very long holiday and doing things I enjoy, like ice skating.
"Then I'll probably start work on a solo album."
Also, Justin told the following to Neil Sean of Sky News: "I'm planning a solo career but I may rejoin the band again at some stage. We all need some space right now."
