The Suck It and See star admitted that in the past he has conjured up "too many terrible lyrics" for songs while on the road.
"I don't really [write while touring] anymore," he told Absolute Radio. "You know, we come up with a few little ideas and some sound checks and that, but I've kind of wrote too many terrible lyrics touring round so I decided to stop."
The 25-year-old singer-songwriter also revealed that the content of the band's first two albums, Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not and Favourite Worst Nightmare, are a distant memory.
Turner added: "It's hard to do the old chip shop rock and roll; once you've done that once then you don't want to hang around that many chippies any more.
"I think that's natural. I couldn't ever write about my surroundings in the same way that I did back then, because if I did that now, what would them songs be about?"
