Natalie Imbruglia is terrified of falling in love again.

The Australian beauty - who split from her husband of four-years, Silverchair rocker Daniel Johns in January last year - is happier than she has ever been but is terrified of having another relationship.

She said: "I'm really happy at the moment. I feel much more sexy, more confident.

"I'm quite enjoying the male attention, but I really just love being single and would be terrified of falling in love."

The 34-year-old beauty - who starred in the soap 'Neighbours' in the 90s before hitting the charts with a smash hit single 'Torn' in 1997 - is thrilled to be back on the music scene now she is older.

She explained to Britain's Style magazine: "I have to work at being more relaxed, but I'm a lot less self-conscious now. I guess I've got fewer years to enjoy it, too.

"My energy at the moment is for my life and my work, and it's like a blank canvas. It's like my life is starting again. I think I'm becoming the person I always wanted to be."

Natalie's new single 'Want' is out on September 28.
