English-born pop artist Zayn Malik has released his latest single Sour Diesel, taken off his 2018 sophomore album, Icarus Falls.
Zayn continues the album’s promotion with the launch of the sixteenth track on the album, Sour Diesel, which follows other singles like Stand Still and Satisfaction. Zayn Malik promoted Sour Diesel through the release of its music video on Thursday, 18 April 2019.
Sour Diesel is a retro, nostalgic pop song. Zayn Malik’s distinct falsetto voice can be heard over an electric guitar solo, which is reminiscent of the late pop icon, Prince. The song is about his obsessive love for what he describes as a dangerous, but beautiful woman.
The accompanying visuals provide a narrative-driven story about the woman he writes about, who saves him from the antagonist in the video. The music video currently sits on over 2 million views on YouTube since its release.
The single is available for purchase on iTunes.
