    first single from album 3 out Friday - I expect this will be big (if it's any good, and the clip sounds very promising)

    Here for this. He had a rough time of it on the last album and with his anxiety but has the TALANT and that sounds like it could be great.

    Didn’t he just have a baby with Yolanda’s daughter?

    Oh, I'm always interested in what he's serving up.

    The first album is brilliant, the second album needed a vicious prune but has a good ten good to excellent tracks on it (There You Are :o :disco:). I don't know where stuff like "Flames" and "Trampoline" fit in but they were very enjoyable too.

    Possibly. Is he going to do any promo this time? I think last time around it consisted of turning up to the launch party for 10 minutes and cancelling everything else :confused:

    ‘Fingers’ still gets plenty of spins chez Kratz.

    Exactly this. There was no need for the second album to be so long when some of the tracks were a slog. But the high points were fantastic.

    There You Are is magnificent. As is Pillowtalk and a handful of other tracks from both albums. I love him.

    Well he is The Most Beautiful Man on Earth, there is that. I'm just not sure about his music most of the time.

    Pillowtalk and Dusk Til Dawn were both wonderful. His voice is so special. I can't really remember any other songs from him at this point but I'm ready for him to get the quality control in check and deliver some smooth bangers he'll never promote with anything other than a shirtless IG pic.

    Rear View is my Zayn pick. He lost me a bit with the faffing about into the second album but I am interested to hear this new one.

    I'd be happy for an album full of stuff like Flower but that's not going to happen :D

    I'd forgotten how gorgeous It's You is

    What have you heard? He needs a bit of curating but you can't go wrong with any of the tracks mentioned in this thread.

    My favourite Zayn track is “She Don’t Love Me” from the first album. That song is 4 years old and it’s the exact production that everyone is doing now. The 80s electric bass is :disco:

    considering he was the least prolific vocally in 1D he can’t half NAIL a vocal. I just love the way he sings. He has more of an R&B voice than Justin ever had (and I love Justin)

    It's You is his other most essential track. Gorgeous. Good Years and Let Me are quite nice too, from Icarus Falls. I just listened to the debut again in full and I find quite a SLOG in the back half.

    It's just ok for me. The melody isn't remotely interesting. You hear the first 20 seconds and you've heard the whole song. Just another slow-jam that sounds like literally thousands of others.

    But I'm definitely here for Zayn getting dressed.

    There You Are is brilliant. I don't even know how I came onto it as I never listened to the LP but it's blinding.

    He certainly has some good tunes, but he's a shit popstar.

    Agreed. All that time away and that half arsed mumblefest is what he has chosen to come back with.

    Agreed. The mumble shite in pop copying trap music really needs to go.

    I played "There You Are" at a homosexual gathering (only 6 people thank you rules fanz) last night and it went down a storm.

    I didn't bother following it up with "Better".

    what is that video? I was patiently waiting for him to look at the camera and whisper "Z......by ZAYN" while splashing some cologne on his neck. Rotting.

    second single Vibez out TOMORROW.

    [​IMG]

    third album Nobody is Listening (the jokes write themselves) out NEXT FRIDAY! it's just 11 tracks including Better.

    the album cover is an absolute monstrosity.

    [​IMG]

    oh, Zayn. you're so pretty, but you paint like shit.

    What a clever album title, it could be applied to SO MANY singers out there.
