According to the article, he's "[seeking] solace in his music," shutting himself off from the world in a West London recording studio and working on his first release with Naughty Boy. We've known about their collaboration in the past, but we just assumed it was going to be a side project.
The producer has also been posting cryptic tweets since the news broke, teasing that he's working hard on a big project.

While we're obviously happy that we'll get to hear Zayn's gorgeous voice (and high notes!) once again, we're a little shocked that he's launching a solo career.
Of course, it seems like he doesn't want the rigorous schedule that came with being a part of 1D, so he probably won't be trying to replicate their success. It seemed like he was pretty upset after his songs didn't make it onto Four, and he's just looking for a way to get out his music now.
