Zayn Malik is preparing to release his new single, as the former One Direction member shares a cryptic teaser clip on social media, implying that the multi-talented musician will feature the late Jimi Hendrix in some capacity.
Taking to social media on Tuesday, Nov. 22, Malik and the official Jimi Hendrix Twitter account shared the teaser, with the caption simply reading, “11.25.22.”

The clip showed the names of both artists melding together as a single white feather theatrically fluttered across them, briefly coming into focus before fading into the abyss.
Fans of both musicians immediately rushed to social media to share their excitement, while some expressed their confusion, as the aforementioned Jimi Hendrix had passed away over five decades ago.
See fan reactions below.
Jimi Hendrix is not alive anymore so I'm confused is it gonna be a cover or remix or something?

zayn we need to confirm is it a new song or a performance or even better a new song performance?

He did die. Zayn is doing the song Angel. Along with Jimi’s estate or whoever owns his music rights.
