Zayn Malik left One Direction to pursue a solo career, however after his debut album Mind of Mine came out, we didn't hear much more from him.
In fact, it was quite well-known that Zayn didn't tour his album because he suffered from intense anxiety.
And although that fact is true, it's actually not the only reason why Zayn didn't tour.
One of the main reasons is actually pretty shady towards his ex band-mates. "I did not want to go on stage and just play one album," he told Interview magazine.
Ouch to Harry and Niall who have both toured their solo albums already, and are already gearing up for another one.
"I want to play a spectacular show and hits," Zayn continued. "People should be entertained from the first to the last minute, but that does not work if you have only a handful of songs. I think, with the new album I have enough songs together."
Does that mean he's working on another album then? Well yes, he is!
"I started working on the new album right after I finished the first one," he revealed.
"It was an ongoing process, I just kept writing and writing and maybe spent a little bit more than a year in the studio. I’m pretty proud of the result, there are some really good songs on it. I’m curious what the fans are saying. We tried a few new things, new styles, new collaborations."
