Zayn has released new single ‘Vibez’, as well as confirming that his third album will arrive next week (January 5).

The mellow R&B infused track will feature on ‘Nobody Is Listening’, the former One Direction member’s third album, alongside 2020 single ‘Better’.

“Vibez Out Now! Nobody is Listening – out Jan 15th,” he confirmed on Twitter.

He sings on the new track: “Don’t keep me waiting / I’ve been waiting all night to get closer / And you already know I got it for you / You know the vibes, know the vibes, put it on ya/ If it’s movin’ too fast, we go slower… You got the vibes, got the vibes.”

It comes after the star shared a teaser for the track on his Twitter page earlier  this week (January 7). The clip sees a camera zooming in on a stage covered in a red curtain. As it pans closer to the platform, the curtain begins to lift, but the video ends before what’s behind it is revealed.

The visuals are soundtracked by a sparse, shadowy instrumental. Watch it below now.

 

According to a listing on Apple Music New Zealand, Zayn’s third album will feature another nine tracks, the titles of which have yet to be revealed.

A statement shared about the upcoming record last year said Zayn had “total creative reign” on the album and was “making the music he has always wanted to”.

The musician last released an album in 2018 with ‘Icarus Falls’. In a four-star review, NME said: “A 27-track mosaic to be poured over time and again, ‘Icarus Falls’ is the pop star cementing himself in the echelon of stardom.”

Meanwhile, Zayn welcomed his first daughter into the world in September after his girlfriend, model Gigi Hadid, gave birth. Announcing her birth on Twitter, the 27-year-old singer shared a black and white photo of the baby’s hand clutching his finger.

“The love i feel for this tiny human is beyond my understanding,” he wrote. “Grateful to know her, proud to call her mine, & thankful for the life we will have together x.”
