On the heels of his former One Direction bandmates releasing their new album, Made In the A.M. (their first as a four-piece), Zayn Malik has some exciting music news too.

And we're not okay, tbh. It's all super exciting and bittersweet because we're still missing him, but moving on, and glad he's happier, etc. etc. It's all a jumble of emotions, but Zayn's new song tease and talk of his solo album is what we'll focus on for now.

In a chat with FADER magazine, which includes a teaser for his first track, "Befour," Zayn talks about his musical influences, explaining, "As I got older, I started listening to my dad's old records like 90s stuff, a lot of R&B and a lot of rap."

He also explained: "I don't feel like people really know what I'm going to give them, musically. 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 s**t down."

We're so looking forward to hearing what Zayn's going to deliver.

And then there's this...a quote most likely to be interpreted by some as a One Direction diss, but we totally get where he's coming from. Zayn explained more about his choice to move on: "It's nice to come out of a place where you're being told what to do and to be a certain way because of certain expectations or certain things that people want to see. It is just all my perspective and that's fully liberating..."
