Zayn Malik has confirmed that his new album is finished.
The chart topping star confirmed the news on social media, news that may have been missed during the furore surrounding his split with model Gigi Hadid.
Taking to Instagram, the former One Direction member posted a selfie with the caption: "When Life throws you lemons , catch em so they don't hit you in the f**king face", presumably in reference to the breakdown of his relationship.
A fan then responded with the sassy retaliation: "OR WHEN LIFE THROWS YOU LEMONS MAKE AN ALBUM BOO", to which Z replied: "albums been done. Just working on my videos ladies calm it, calm it 😂"
With one single from the album already released (Dusk Till Dawn) complete with music video, we can expect at least another two singles from the record judging by Zayn's answer to the fan. It has already been confirmed that Zayn's March 2017 release Still Got Time ft. PARTYNEXTDOOR will not feature on the forthcoming second studio album.
Dusk Till Dawn featuring Sia was the lead track from the album, and peaked at Number 5. The song spent 11 weeks in the Official Singles Chart Top 10, the longest consecutive stint for any solo single released by a member of One Direction. View Zayn's UK chart history here.
The CEO of Zayn Malik's record label RCA, Peter Edge, praised the material on his upcoming new album, stating it "has a more optimistic tone to it".
