Zayn says, “To be honest with you, Duncan, when it comes to anything that has to do with trivia about people’s personal lives or things that’s going on in their careers, I don’t necessarily pay too much attention. I don’t pay too much attention to what people even say about me. I just tend to take it for what it is when I meet them people in real life and have a conversation with them. If they’re cool with me, then I base my relationship on that.  In terms of relating to it, of course I relate to things being written about us all the time. But I don’t listen to it. I rate her as an artist, I think she’s cool, I think she’s successful, and I think she deserves her success because she’s worked hard. That’s just how I look at it. I did a song with her, it was fun, she was professional. She gets on with my girlfriend, they’re good friends. I don’t have a bad word to say about her. She’s cool.” 


Zayn also spoke about his new album.  He explained to FADER that he’s been working hard on writing the new album and in case you it didn’t catch on, Zayn actually missed the VMAs!  He confesses that he stayed back to work in the studio and write new material.


Zayn explains, “This record, I’ve kind of finalized it. But there’s always ideas. Every day I find another song that I’m swapping out with another one. That’s why the album date hasn’t really come yet. Even though the album is pretty much there, and I have the material, I’m still changing things here and there. It’s not necessary in my head when I work on a song whether it’s for a new project or whether it’s for this.”


Now, he won’t say what the title of his new album is but he assures fans that it’ll be out very soon – within the next couple of months or so.




And just recently, Zayn dropped a new single with Sia called ‘Dusk Till Dawn’.  Zayn told FADER, “I didn’t get in the studio with Sia — I did the majority of the song already, and my management played it during a meeting with her. She really liked it, so she basically said, “Can I do something on it?” She did it separately, though, and I’d really like to work with her in a studio. She was probably the person who got it the most, straight away. I just thought she was really cool. She didn’t take much time, she just knew what she was doing.”
