I've made the flawless record and now I can leave at the very top'.

Michael previously opened up about the impact of his son's cancer in an interview with Australia's Today show, when he said: "It sucked and it still sucks, because what we went through was the worst possible thing that you could hear as a parent and maybe as a human being".

In an emotional interview with the Daily Mail, the 43-year-old spoke about his son's illness led his "perception of life" to change.

The diagnosis not only changed Michael's way of thinking, but gave him a wake up call.

"They came over, we partied and we said, "Let's play some music".

The singer said that he was finished with fame and the anxiety that comes along with it and he admitted that "just wanted to die" after he learned that Noah was sick.

Michael Bublé has revealed he is retiring after giving his "last ever interview". I don't even know how I was breathing'.

Storm Callum: More rain set to bring further disruption
Met Éireann issued Status Orange weather warnings for 13 counties, with high winds coinciding with high tides yesterday evening. Rainfall totals could reach as high as 150mm over the Brecon Beacons, almost as high as the monthly average of 170mm for Wales.

But really, it's more than that: In November of 2016, Bublé's son, Noah, was diagnosed with cancer at the age three, and both he and his wife put their lives on hold. "But the diagnosis made me realize how stupid I'd been to worry about these unimportant things".

"And I've never lost control of my emotions in public", he said. "I was embarrassed by my ego, that it had allowed this insecurity".

The singer explained that he realised he had become too caught up in his own success and he can now no longer stomach "the celebrity narcissism". That's why the singer, praised for his fusion of jazz and pop, chose to stop reading reviews.

Understandably, he was in no place to make new music during this time. "I'd much rather it'd have been me".

Do you think Love will be Michael's last album?

Michael and Luisana have two other children - 11-week-old Vida and Elias, two.
