The singer's second album is coming soon...

Zayn Malik has released a cover of Elvis Presley‘s ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love’ – check out the track below.

The former One Direction pop star is set to release his second solo album this year. It will follow 2016’s ‘Mind Of Mine’. In a four-star review, NME said of the record: “Zayn has clearly achieved his aim of making an album of sexy, credible pop-R&B. ‘Mind Of Mine’ is sumptuously produced and perfectly sung, with just enough intrigue.”

Last month, the singer teased fans with the promise of “a few surprises” in regards to his next album. He also said that the LP was “on the way”. The update was accompanied by a cover of Beyoncé’s ‘Me, Myself And I’.

Last month, Madonna and her son David covered the classic track, with the Queen of Pop sharing the performance on Instagram.

Meanwhile, Zayn confirmed that his new album was complete back in March. “It’s a bit different to my last record in terms of it’s matured, [I’ve] got a bit older,” he said. “I didn’t know what was going on for a while. I was just putting out a record and not really being as prominent as I wanted to be.”
