Ex-One Direction vocalist Zayn Malik (now simply ZAYN) has released a music video for his new single "Dusk Till Dawn," featuring Sia. Check out the clip above, courtesy of the artist's YouTube channel.
The impassioned anthem is an elaborate testament to the vocal talent on display, with masterfully layered harmonies that enliven the tension between the song's subdued verses and torrential hook. Zayn's smooth, steady croon lies comfortably below the virtuosic range of Sia's swift cadences, a tasteful match made in pop heaven.
Directed by Marc Webb and starring former Girls co-star Jemima Kirke, the clip is a gripping narrative that depicts Malik and Kirke as a suspicious duo that craftily foils the attempts of the police and another unidentified group from frustrating their criminal arrangements. Stylish and dramatic, the film pairs nicely with the climactic ballad.
"Dusk Till Dawn," collaboratively written with Sia and producer Greg Kurstin, is the first single from ZAYN's upcoming studio album on RCA Records.
