Zayn unveiled the next song off his forthcoming album Icarus Falls, titled “Good Years,” on Thursday (Dec. 6).
The 25-year-old singer is accompanied by a sole piano in the opening refrain, his voice wrought with emotion: “I’d rather be anywhere, anywhere but here/ I’d rather be anywhere, anywhere but here/ I close my eyes, I see a crowd of a thousand tears/ I pray to God I didn’t waste all my good years/ All my good years/ All my good years.”
“Good Years” was released alongside a lyric video that features the song’s lines in capital letters against a dark, starry slow-moving background.
Zayn previously released a lyric video for “Rainberry” off his upcoming sophomore solo album on Nov. 29. Icarus Falls is due Dec. 14.
