AceShowbiz - He's back! Zayn Malik is working hard on his sophomore album, and he has now announced a new single off the upcoming effort. Titled "Dusk Till Dawn", the song features guest verses from Australian singer Sia Furler. The former One Direction star made the announcement on social media by sharing a movie poster-style cover art of the collaborative track.
"Dusk Till Dawn" is set to arrive next week on Thursday, September 7, and it looks like it will be premiered along with its music video. According to the artwork, the upcoming visuals will be directed by Marc Webb and feature "Girls" star Jemima Kirke.
The announcement comes just days after Zayn treated fans to a glimpse of the new project in a short clip as a gratitude for his victory at the VMAs. The cryptic teaser found Zayn opening a briefcase before the words "Coming Soon" popped up onscreen. "Dusk Till Dawn" will serve as the follow-up to Zayn's PARTYNEXTDOOR-assisted track "Still Got Time", which was released in March.
It's been a year since Zayn released his debut solo album "Mind of Mine". He has been working hard in the studio while overcoming his anxiety issue. "I hope people get an insight to me as a person, because I'm not the most open book in terms of my personal life," he recently said. "I hope people get an understanding of where I'm coming from or what I'm thinking and what I'm going through, and feel closer to me through that. I just want my music to speak for me, and if it does that successfully, then I'm happy with what I achieve."
"I feel like my songwriting definitely developed, just because I've been doing it so much. I feel like the songs are a bit more organized," the boyfriend of Gigi Hadid explained. "This one is more thought out. I had more time to process everything and go through it all. It's an evolution."
The 24-year-old heartthrob also confirmed record producer Malay's involvement on the upcoming project. "There's a couple of songs on the record that I've done with Malay that for me, personally, I'm really proud of," he shared. "I just feel like there's something really classic about some of the music that we've done together, and for that reason, I'm really proud of some of the songs that are going to come out. I feel like it really shows me as a songwriter and a vocalist."
