Zayn Malik fans, it’s a VERY exciting day.

Not only has the 23-year-old unveiled the album artwork for his debut solo album Mind Of Mine, but he’s also debuted his second single It’s You.

Zayn’s previously hinted that It’s You was written about his ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards, telling Apple Music’s Beats 1 that he started recording Mind Of Mine when they were still engaged.

Beats 1 host Zane Lowe noted: ‘There’s a song on the record called It’s You, which is to me I can tell a real centre-piece for the album. Vocally certainly.

‘It’s about the break-up of your relationship, clearly.’

In the same interview, Zayn revealed: ‘I just felt like I needed to put myself out there a bit on that because it was a form of therapy for me, and it did help me get through some s***.

The record is due out on 25 March, which is exactly one year to the day since he left his 1D bandmates behind.
