In addition to more pics being released, the former One Direction star also opened up about life post boy band.
Not too far off from his recent Billboard interview, the 23-year-old shared of keeping in touch with Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Niall Horan:
"The truth is I haven't spoken to any of the boys at all really, I spoke to Liam a bit and that's just the way it is. I did try to reach out to a couple of people and they didn't get back to me, but then publicly, when they were asked questions about it, said that they'd spoken to me and that we were friends. But that's not the case, I tried to reach out and be their friend but they haven't even replied to any of my calls or texts."
Well, they probably won't be happy to hear him airing them out like that!
Can't everyone just be friends??
Though Zayn did reassure there's "no competition between me and the boys, I didn't leave for any reasons of animosity, I just wanted to do me."
YOLO, right?? He even continued:
"Now that I can really be myself and make music that feels honest to me, it doesn't feel like work. It really is relaxing to me. When I decided to leave, it wasn't a big build up, it had always been underlying. I never felt like I belonged in the group, I was just doing it because at the time, I felt like it was the right place for me to be."
As for the upcoming album, Gigi Hadid's current flame shared:
"I just want this album to be about me and me standing on my own two feet. I've sung with four other voices for over four years now so I want to hear myself, alone for once."
We can't wait to hear what you've got up your designer sleeves!
