Zayn Malik Says His New Music Will Explain One Direction Exit
"Life influences are really influences for the album, and just stuff that I've been through, especially in the last five years with being in the band and everything," he said in a preview video. "Yeah, it's quite a personal album."
"It's a nice feeling to come out of a place where you are being told what to do, and, you know, to behave a certain way because of certain expectations or certain things that people want to see," he said about his time in One Direction. Speaking about this new project, he admitted, "It is just my perspective, and that is fully liberating."
Malik told FADER, 'I don't feel like people really know what I'm going to give them, musically. 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, and why I had to write this sh*t down. 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." Read more here.
