Los Angeles - Zayn Malik insists his album release date is a coincidence.

The 23-year-old singer will release Mind of Mine on 25 March, exactly one year after he quit One Direction, but Zayn claims it wasn't planned.

He said: "I don't know, is that how it works out? It's March 25, it wasn't planned that way. It works that way. It just seems to coincide with the iTunes launch and everything. Maybe it's a sign."

Meanwhile, the Pillowtalk hitmaker revealed he was happy to be included in One Direction's History music video, which shows old footage of the band from when they were first formed on X Factor.

Speaking in an interview with Zach Sang & The Gang, he said: "I have seen the music video. That was cool. I liked that fact that they were nostalgic, shall we say, about the memories we shared together. It was a positive thing to watch. I enjoyed it. It was nice to look back at those memories that we shared together. It was cool."

And Zayn also revealed he was heavily involved with the concept behind the music video for Pillowtalk but he wanted people to come to their own conclusions about what it means.

He said: "Mostly my idea. I wanted it to be representational of the art that I'm looking at right now, even just a perspective level. On the surface of it, I wanted it be arty, and different and out-there. That was the whole feel for the video. We wanted a dream-feel to it and represent that. There are deeper meanings to things as well. I don't want to put labels on things. I want people to figure it out themselves."
