Listen to it here.

The time Zayn said he craved out of the limelight was shortlived.

After ditching One Direction just before the SA-leg of their tour, the 22-year-old announced he was quitting the band to be "normal".

But it's since emerged that Zayn left the band to go it alone, and had already been in studio working on material. Clearly he's been at it a while - what appears to be his first track is already finished.

The producer that Zayn is said to be working with, Naughty Boy, retweeted a video that claimed "Naughty Boy saved 'Zaughty" and "Zaughty will rise."

His tweet sent Louis Tomlinson, one of Zayn's former bandmates, into a bit of a rage, who tweeted back: "Wow @NaughtyBoyMusic you're so inconsiderate pal, seriously how f---ing old are you? Grow up! #masterofallwisdom." A nasty 'Twar' (twitter war - but we'll spare you the expletive-infused details) ensued, which culminated in Naughty Boy releasing a track called I don't Mind, supposedly by Zayn himself.
