Zayn Malik — Sneak Peek At New Music

Zayn Malik is back! The ex-member of the UK boy band One Direction has just released his first look at what he’s been working on since leaving the band earlier this year. Malik choose to do his first solo interview with The Fader and this morning the magazine published a brief announcement about Malik’s cover story that will be available to read later today starting at 3pm PST. The update was accompanied with a sneak peek video that was produced as a teaser to the interview and to preview Malik’s first single off his solo album, “Befour” which is heard in the background of the video.

The teaser video was filmed at Malik’s North London home and shows him hanging out outside his house during dusk. The video consists of Malik riding his motorcycle around while a voiceover of his interview is being played over the video. The music in the background is actually the first time anyone can hear a snippet of the music Malik has been working on since he left One Direction on March 25, 2015. This interview is the first time Malik has spoken to a publication since going solo and The Fader has exclusives on what he’s been doing since the day he left the band, how this music is something he’s been wanting for a long time, and an account of how Malik’s last morning in the band went down.

While Malik was part of the biggest boy band of this generation, there has been a lot of mixed feelings coming from fans of the band and the ones that have been following Malik since he left. Many see this new music as “too soon”, while others can’t wait to see him start doing the music he’s been wanting to do since he started in the music business. Twitter is exploding with opinions and memes with their reaction of this new announcement, even #Befour has become the world top trending hashtag since this morning.

Regardless of whether everyone is ready or not, Malik sure is. He tell The Fader, “And once they hear it, I feel like they will understand me a little bit more, and they’ll understand why I did what I did, and why I left the band, … Because for five – not even for five years, for ten years, this album has been in my brain, and it’s just been there, sat with me, needing to be out.”
