Zayn Malik releases his interpretation of the 1971 classic “Angel” by Jimi Hendrix

On November 25, the former member of One Direction released his cover of the guitarist’s 1971 song “Angel,” which was first released on his posthumous album

Zayn debuted his take on the song starting from the opening line, “Angel came down from heaven.”

It appears to be approved by the late icon’s team, as Jimi’s Instagram page posted a teaser of the song earlier in the week. A spokesperson for Experience Hendrix, L.L.C. told Billboard, “We are pleased that Zayn has been inspired to use original music from Jimi Hendrix’s ‘Angel’ in his recording of the song. We’re hopeful that this version of a Hendrix classic will enlighten a new generation of listeners about Jimi’s genius and further propel his continuing legacy.

Getting to pay tribute to Jimi through this cover is something Zayn will never forget. “Being asked to collaborate to celebrate @jimihendrix 80th birthday was such an unexpected and huge honour,” he wrote on Instagram. “I have so much respect and admiration for Jimi, his music and fans. ‘Angel’ is out now – hope you love the track as much as I do. Happy 80th Jimi.”

According to a coroner’s assessment, Jimi unfortunately passed away in 1970 at the age of 27 after inhaling his own vomit. He was said to have passed away from suffocation while under the influence of barbiturates.

After his 2021 album Nobody Is Listening, Zayn, 29, releases a new song called “Angel” more than 50 years later. Additionally, he and Yung Bleu recently worked together on the song “Fire Inside.”

Other than that, he has been concentrating on activism, co-parenting his 2-year-old daughter Khai with Gigi Hadid, and advocating for extended free school lunches in the U.K. (She acknowledged him in September after their daughter’s Peppa Pig birthday celebration.)
