The Zayn Malik solo era is upon us: The former One Direction member has debuted the sensual single “PillowTalk” on early Friday morning (Jan. 29) and previewed his first solo album, Mind of Mine.

As promised, “PillowTalk” is a sexy, engrossing R&B track that sounds completely removed from Zayn's 1D days. F-bombs are dropped, beats stutter, and the singer's voice is front and center: "I love to hold you close, tonight and always/I love to wake up next to you," Zayn sings before the towering chorus returns.

Mind of Mine is due out this spring on RCA Records; Malik unveiled the album title earlier on Thursday during an appearance on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show. He also revealed that Kehlani will guest on the highly anticipated solo effort.

One Direction released its first post-Zayn album, Made In The A.M., in November, ahead of a hiatus. Click here to watch the group’s new video for “History.”
