As you may have heard, a few days ago Zayn and Taylor Swift won a MTV VMA for Best Collaboration for their song titled “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”. Shortly after the duo’s victory was announced, Zayn posted a little thank you video and shocked fans when he hinted at the release of his new music. Little did we know that the thing he had in mind was in fact his recently announced single titled “Dusk Till Dawn”.

Zayn was quite busy this year with his numerous projects, including a single titled “Still Got Time” featuring PARTYNEXTDOOR, a Vogue cover with his significant other, his Zayn X Versus cloathing line collaboration with Versace, a shoe collection with Giuseppe Zanotti, and even the release of his new book. But now Malik is back with what got him those opportunities in the first place- his music.
Everyone who knows Zayn and his music knows one thing, and that is that he’s a powerful vocalist. Now it looks like he’s once again putting his talent to good use, as he’s decided to collaborate with another performer who is known around the world for her insane vocal ability, especially on her hit single “Chandelier”. That’s right, Zayn is working with none other than Sia herself.
Besides the general information, the artwork reveals that Jemima Kirke will have a role in the video directed by Marc Webb.
Also, let’s talk about Zayn’s new hair.

Jemima is best known for her role as Jessa Johansson in the TV series Girls, and Marc Webb also has quite a lot of directing jobs under his belt. He’s directed The Amazing Spider-Man, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Gifted, 500 Days Of Summer, and many other films, even a few episodes for TV series like The Office and Instinct. As far as his accomplishments in the music industry, he’s directed videos for Green Day, 3 Doors Down, My Chemical Romance, Maroon 5, and many other performers!
So judging by all the information we’ve gathered, the single “Dusk Till Dawn” should have no difficulty finding its place at the top of the charts after it’s released on September 7th. The song features two powerful vocalists, the video stars a gifted actress, and is being directed by a legend in the music/film industry.
