Picture this: a high speed car chase, a played out heist, and Zayn Malik at the helm.
Well, that is what you’re going to get when Malik drops his next single, Dusk until Dawn, on Sept 7. Sneaking a little preview to fans on his Instagram and other social media, the former 1D singer gives us only 4 days to contemplate what is to come. Perhaps the short time frame is good, making our hype remain high during the wait, or bad, as it is possible not everyone is up to date on all things Malik. Either way, from what we’ve seen, it looks fab!
The preview is only a few seconds long, but it is enough to cause a stir. Zayn is seen behind the wheel of a car as it pulls speeding out into traffic. A mysterious woman walks through what to be a sketchy corner of what appears to be China Town. A chase seen ensues, before the clip ends. It looks something out of Mission Impossible, and even has 80s themed cover art.
The new song also raises the question of it we can expect a new album from Zayn within the coming months. If so, Zayn promises an evolution from his debut Mind of Mine.
“I feel like my songwriting definitely developed. I’ve been doing it so much. I feel like the songs are a bit more organized, where I felt like, before, that Mind of Mine was a brainstorm. That’s why I called it Mind of Mine, because it was ideas that I had that I put out. This one is more thought out. I had more time to process everything and go through it all. It’s an evolution.” – Zayn, VMAN magazine
