Zayn Malik has engaged new management to help kickstart his solo career, presumably having tired of being “a normal 22 year old” having “some private time out of the spotlight”.

Or perhaps he wants someone official to make announcements and release new material on his behalf, rather than collaborator Naughty Boy just posting it all to Twitter. Or perhaps he suspects there could be four more former 1D boys having a go at the solo career thing very soon, so he ought to get his off the ground pronto.

Either way, rather than signing up with One Direction overseers Modest! Management, Malik is putting his solo ambitions into the hands of Sarah Stennett at Turn First Artists. Though, despite the new management arrangement, it is thought the former IDer could continue to work with Simon Cowell’s Sony imprint Syco if and when he gets round to releasing some new tunes.
