“I ask myself now, as I write this … what makes me feel more beautiful, more hopeful and more at peace?” she wrote. “So, if I do indeed press SEND and put this online, I hope it brings me the smile in my eyes, the light in my life, that has been absent for just so long.

“I can now leave this decade behind. Where the past belongs. Hopefully no more “what happened to Duffy questions”, now you know … and I am free.”

Last month, Duffy shared a new song – her first new material since 2015, when she contributed three songs to a film soundtrack – which was played on Radio 2.

While she chose not to release the track, titled Something Beautiful, officially, Duffy said she hoped people would hear it on the radio and that it would “lift spirits… during these troubling times”.

At the time, she said: “You might have read the words I wrote a few weeks back, I do feel freer.

“I tried to follow it up with a spoken interview but it is harder than I thought. I will follow up in writing soon.”
