Zayn prepares to release his sophomore album.

Zayn Says He’s Happy, Don’t Worry
Whether it’s about his new album or mental wellness, Zayn says, “My fans can rest assured everything is under control.”
Last week I got a phone call: “Zayn feels like doing an interview.” I’d been waiting for this moment ever since the bad boy of Bradford’s 2015 FADER cover story, his first major press since going solo and one my favorite pieces we’ve put to print. Our original interview was in the lead-up to Zayn’s debut album, Mind of Mine, and this one, done ahead of the Sia-featuring “Dusk Till Dawn,” signals things are finally coming into place for his sophomore LP.
Details are still scant on Z2 — he wouldn’t tell me the title or release date, though “a tour is definitely on the cards” this time. But as is always the case with Zayn, if you read between the lines you can see mountains. He’s sleeping well. He’s gardening. He tells a beautiful story about translating English letters to his immigrant grandfather. Great things are coming “soon.”
Here’s everything Zayn wants you to know.
