Stereophonics singer Kelly Jones insists he has no “plans to slow down".

Some fans had been concerned by the star working on side projects away from the chart-topping band, but Kelly say there's plenty more music to come.

He recently started a new side project called Far From Saints, and joined Graham Norton to tell him about the band.

He joined US musicians Patty Lynn and Dwight Baker of The Wind and The Wave.

Kelly told the Daily Star: “I don’t think I want to slow down anytime soon.

“If anything, I am frustrated that I can’t get the produce that I want in my life. Because I am a father of four and there is just so much responsibility in my life, it is a big juggling act.

“I know what I want to do. Will I ever get to do it all? I don’t really know.

“But beginning to do it, with Patty, this makes me feel good. Doing this project made me feel good.

"The clock has to get set earlier and earlier every day. I am not Mark Wahlberg but it’s dark every time I get up.

“I like having kids and I like the responsibility that comes with it, but it knackers you out sometimes."

The project came to life after Kelly spent time harmonising with Patty backstage while on tour together.

He said: "I sing completely differently on this record as Patty is kind of the high range so I am the low range. This was a different approach vocally and it has been fun. In the Stereophonics, I kind of do it all."
