Zayn Malik Reveals Album Cover and Next Single

With the help of The Roots and a new song, Zayn made his TV debut as a solo act late Wednesday night. The former One Direction member introduced Tonight Show viewers to "It's You," a song People notes likely concerns his ex-fiancée Perrie Edwards. "I won't / Cover the scar / I'll let it be / So my silence, so my silence won't / Be mistaken for believing," he croons. "Am I wrong for wanting us to make it? / Tell me your lies / Because I just can't face it." Roll the clip above for the poignant, ethereal release, which serves as a clearer indication of Zayn's new sonic direction. Also, enjoy the very adorable, very inky Mind of Mine cover:

The album's out March 25.
