Acclaimed British producer Naughty Boy has confirmed he has entered the studio with long-term collaborator Emeli Sande alongside One Direction’s Zayn Malik.

Speaking on Twitter, the producer, real name Shahid Khan, said “sick studio vibes with @emelisande & @zaynmalik – forget what you think you know. #doitanyway”.

It’s widely known Sande has been working hard on the follow-up to 2012’s debut Our Version Of Events, however it’s not confirmed as to whether the new material Naughty Boy announced will appear on either Sande’s forthcoming as-yet-untitled sophomore LP or the new One Direction album, slated to arrive early 2015.
