In what has been one of the most hotly anticipated interviews since Beyonce was our cover star, our Zayn Malik profile is finally on the news stands.
And as if ten whole pages of glorious imagery, two amazing covers and lots of deliciously personal quotes wasn't enough to sate your burning appetite for everything Zayn Malik (seriously, go buy the magazine), here we are with some further, exclusive imagery from the shoot.
You're very, very welcome.
On his solo career and love of music:'My entire life has changed in the last year. I'm still taking it all in. I've found so much out about myself. Mostly how in love with music I still was. The album is a build up of six years and never being able to express what I wanted to say. I had something to get off my chest.'
On his relationship with his mum and sisters: 'I enjoyed the womanly influence. I have a lot of respect for women because of them. They are so strong, powerful and do everything themselves…'
On his relationship with model Gigi Hadid: 'She's super intelligent, I think that's why it works so well. And we do the same type of job so we get that with each other.'
