Why Zayn Malik Fans Think His First New Music In 3 Years Might Be A Country Album

Is Zayn Malik switching up his music style? The One Direction alum’s co-producer Dave Cobb confirmed to Rolling Stone in a new interview that Zayn is set to release a still-untitled new album soon. “What got me about Zayn was his voice, you can hear love, loss, pain, triumph and humanity in it. I feel as if this record is removing the glass from his spirit directly to his fans. Zayn has really created his own universe on this record, he really has no fear and is speaking straight from his soul,” he told the outlet. Dave is known for working in the country and rock genres, creating music with artists like Chris Stapleton, Brandi Carlile and more. Thus, fans are sparking rumors that Zayn’s album will have a country kick! This isn’t the first time Zayn has teased his new music. In July 2023, the “Pillowtalk” singer stopped by Alex Cooper’s podcast “Call Her Daddy” and he opened up about why his upcoming project is “different.”
