British singer Joss Stone is single again after splitting from her boyfriend.

The You Had Me hitmaker began dating a man from her home county of Devon, south-west England in 2011, but they recently parted ways.

She tells Britain's You magazine, "I'm fine. It's fine. It's a bummer but I'll live, and at least I should get a few new songs out of the situation.

"If you love someone and they go away, you're going to be sad for a while. That's all there is to it. It's not the first time it's happened so I know I'll be Ok."

Stone has previously dated songwriter Beau Dozier.
