Zayn Malik teases snippets of new music
A few hours ago Zayn Malik shared a series of moody, bluesy piano-driven song snippets with his followers, which mostly consisted of dark piano chords, ghostly vocals and a visual of piano keys in shifting light.
What does it mean? Is there something on the way for the former One Direction member? Malik, who’s been working on his second solo album, has not announced a release date or first single for the follow-up to 2016’s Mind of Mine solo debut. He just dropped a new song in September 2017, a featuring with Sia titled “Dusk Till Dawn.”
The singer also shared on Instagram some poetry, maybe the lyrics of a new song. “Fell from clouds/ To please no crowds/ To make one proud/ No need to shout/ That loud/ Ones need to stand out/ Can Cloud one’s doubt/ Arrogance sits beyond/ Confidence,” it’s just something he wrote.
The first post, captioned “singing,” features footage of piano keys with a far-away-sounding Malik singing bluesy lyrics. The second one, has his vocals rising into a higher range, with a cabaret feel and lyrics such as, “she wants somebody to love/ In the right way” which Malik croons urgently.
Finally the third part is titled “No mic,” and it opens with a repeat of the phrase “in the right way” over the same sustained piano phrase. You can have a look at what Malik shared here.
