Basshunter has quit singing indefinitely.
The 'All I Ever Wanted' hitmaker has announced his latest album 'Calling Time' will be the last studio collection that will feature his vocals after deciding to take a break from lyrically performing for a while in order to focus on DJing and producing tracks for other artists.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, he said: ''I've decided I'm not going to sing anymore. I've always seen myself as a music producer and a songwriter and you know this whole thing with being on stage singing, that was just a coincidence that it kind of led to that.
''My backbone is a DJ and right now I've met so many good vocalists, I did a couple of tracks and I let them sing on them and it's just so much more interesting when someone else is singing a song that you've written. It's just a different thing.''
The 28-year-old star - real name Jonas Altberg - admits his decision to turn his back on singing comes after completing a four-day tour in the US, which left he completely drained of energy.
He explained: ''I love DJing and also like now in the US, I was doing four shows in four days, if you're on stage singing, you're completely screwed after that. DJing doesn't drain your energy in the same way.''
