    Just days before his major label release hits domestic shores, British wunderkind Patrick Wolf is threatening to quit the music industry for good. In a message board posting on his official website, Wolf declared that his last live show will probably take place in November.

    "I have made a decision, my final concert will be this November, a retrospective with an orchestra in London," Wolf wrote. "I am not sure whether there will be anymore public communications after that. In fact I am pretty sure there will be none... A creative clock is ticking and I have many, many projects to be creating with my time left on this earth. I hope to share my last shows with you this year."

    He continued blaming his exhaustion on the promotional responsibilities: "I don't think when I was 16 and dreamt of releasing records there would ever be so much crazy speculation about the person I am and what you want me to be.

    "I have become so tired of this behaviour, sometimes I wake up and have to do six hours of interviews before doing a show, then go straight to bed to sleep a couple of hours then fly to a new country to be cross-examined in the same way...I don't know what is left of me."

    In just a few days, ARTISTdirect will post an interview we conducted with Wolf, and we have to say, he was totally chatty and cooperative to all the questions asked. Maybe we caught him on a good day?
