The track – which lyrically tells the tale “of an unrequited romance through the phone” – was written and recorded by Zayn in London over the summer. You can listen to ‘Fingers’ below.

This new single is the fifth solo track to be released by Zayn this year, following on from ‘Let Me’, ‘Entertainer’, ‘Sour Diesel’ and ‘Too Much’, which featured the super-producer Timbaland.

Zayn previously claimed back in March that his new album had already been completed, telling fans that “it’s a bit different to my last record in terms of it’s matured, [I’ve] got a bit older.”

As well as original material, Zayn has also released a cover of an Elvis Presley track this year. The sleek rendition of the late icon’s 1961 song ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ came out back in July.
