Is Zayn Malik dropping a new album in 2024? Here’s what we know about his upcoming fourth album.

Zayn Malik could be releasing a whole new album sooner than we thought!

It feels like forever since we got a new project from the former One Direction star after he dropped his last and third studio album, ‘Nobody Is Listening’ back in January 2021.

He has now even confirmed himself that he is gearing up to release his fourth studio album (and yes, we’re all screaming too!).

After Zayn released single 'Love Like This' in July 2023 fans have been are awaiting more news about new music and during an outing in France he revealed to fans that it was "coming soon".

Here’s what we know so far about Z4, from the release date to the tracklist and potential collaborations…

When is Zayn Malik's fourth album coming out?

It’s been three years since his last album dropped, so fans have been hoping for a 2024 release and it seems Zayn has just confirmed it! Speaking to fans on the streets of France about his upcoming music, he said: "It's coming soon. I'm actually going for a rehearsal."

The former 1D bandmate has been making a lot of public appearances recently so it seems we will be getting Z4 in the near future!

We may not have an official release date yet but Zayn told Rolling Stone while promoting his collaboration with Pakistani group Aur, he's working on an album 'people won't expect.'

He said: “I’m doing a record I don’t think people are really gonna expect. It’s a different sound for me. And it’s got some more narrative going on, like real-life experiences and stuff. My daughter’s mentioned in there a couple of times.”

Zayn dropped his debut solo album ‘Mind Of Mine’ in 2016, his second album ‘Icarus Falls’ in 2018 and his third in 2021, so roughly a two-year wait between projects seems fitting!

What will Zayn Malik’s fourth album be called?

Since Zayn only released his comeback song in summer 2023, there’s not a whole lot we know about the album as of yet.

A screenshot from Zayn’s Spotify bio has been doing the rounds online after the last sentence teased new music.

“Zayn is currently working on his highly anticipated fourth studio album,” it read, and we are now patiently waiting for more info from the star himself.

Is there a tracklist for Zayn Malik’s fourth album - will there be any features?

Details about the tracklist for Zayn’s fourth album are yet to be revealed, but he typically treats fans to a lengthy project, so we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a lot of new bops!

Some fans have also been hoping for a Zayn x Selena Gomez collab as she is also currently working on her next project.

The ‘Pillowtalk’ singer has worked with some huge names in the past including Taylor Swift, Sia, PARTYNEXTDOOR and Kehlani, so we wouldn’t be surprised if some more A-list names appeared on his new tracklist.
