Lewis Capaldi previously admitted quitting music is a 'real possibility'.
Just over the weekend, Capaldi called his Glastonbury set a 's***show' as crowd filled in the lyrics because he struggled due to losing his voice.
The star took to the pyramid stage on Saturday (24 June) but was unable to finish his set.
After performing 'Bruises', Capaldi said he was having voice issues, telling the crowd: "I’m going to be honest everybody but I’m starting to lose my voice up here, but we’re going to keep going and we’re going to go until the end.
"I just need you all to sing with me as loud as you can if that’s okay?"
Before his final song, Capaldi told his adoring fans: "I recently took three weeks off just because I’ve been non stop the past year and I wanted to take a wee break from my head for my mental health.
"I wanted to come back and do Glastonbury because it’s obviously so incredible so I just want to thank you all for coming out.
"I was scared but you’ve really made me feel at ease so thank you very much for that.”
Capaldi added: "I feel like I’ll be taking another wee break over the next couple of weeks so you probably won’t see much of me for the rest of the year maybe even.
"But when I do come back, when I do see you, I hope you’re all still up for watching."
The 'Forget Me' hit-maker previously admitted to just how much his mental health, certain pressures of the music industry and and 'imposter syndrome' affects his ability to perform.
He told The Sunday Times back in April: "It’s only making music that does this to me.
"Otherwise I can be fine for months at a time. So it’s a weird situation. Right now, the trade-off is worth it."
Capaldi continued to reveal: "But if it gets to a point where I’m doing irreparable damage to myself, I’ll quit. I hate hyperbole but it is a very real possibility that I will have to pack music in."
The singer added: "My tic is getting quite bad on stage now.
"I’m trying to get on top of that. If I can’t, I’m f***ed. It’s easier when I play guitar, but I hate playing guitar. I know, I’m a walking contradiction."
