But wait – is that Zayn's voice we hear on one of the album's tracks?
Rumors have been flying that Zayn's vocals can be heard on the song "Home," and this quote from Liam (which we can't find in any interview, despite our best efforts) seems to confirm it. Liam apparently said: "Some fans said they heard Zayn singing in 'Home' and it's true, we did a little mix with his and Harry's voice."
We're still not sure whether it's legit or not, considering Liam told Smallzy on Nova FM (via Press Party) recently: "[Zayn] actually left before we started to really make it...it was kinda crucial at the time that he left otherwise it might have made things very different for us, 'cause we'd have to do a lot of re-recording of different things - more the work side of things than anything."
