Zayn aims higher than high with new single ‘Sour Diesel.’
The latest of an increasingly long string of songs issued from his still-MIA sophomore album, the track (which is named after a strand of cannabis) sees the former One Direction star funk things up.
Driving in an altogether different direction from previous cuts ‘Let Me’ and ‘Entertainer,’ the track awaits your listening below…
The song fuses Funk, Rock, and elements of Electro to unique effect.
It doesn’t pack the punch of ‘Pillow Talk’ nor the infectious urgency of ‘Let Me,’ but it does sound like the formation of a potentially promising sound if developed more.
That said, we’re a little confused as to why Zayn keeps throwing tracks out and hoping for the best. Is he trying to use the public’s initial response as the compass for his artistic direction? Because if so it raises serious questions about authenticity.
More than anything, given the fever-pitch reaction that greets his every move, surely he’d be able to light a flame under any song he drops if he hit the promo trail to…you know…actually………...perform?!
