Zayn’s Dusk Till Dawn Video Is About Him Leaving One Direction (Theory)


Page One: Dusk Till Dawn vs From The Dining Table

Page Two: Dusk Till Dawn Music Video Theory


It didn’t take long after I discovered the earth-shattering Zarry saga (and One Direction in general) for me to dive headfirst into research and never look back (as I do with any story I become passionate about.) Nor did it take long for me to comb painstakingly over Zayn and Harry’s latest offerings to the music world and realize not only were they likely back in touch on some level (despite the media subterfuge they employed to deflect from this fact) but also they were singing about each other!

Boy oh boy did I turn out to be right in many of my theories about Post-1D-Zarry, even though many Zarries (cough Zstans cough) tried to deny that Zarry had a relationship after the band. They had the audacity to insist Zigi was real and that Zayn was happy with her despite having a past with Harry. Essentially they just didn’t want Zayn to look like a cheater. (*shrugs*)

Those people were biased and unobjective in their assessments, always wanting Zayn to come out on top, so they were more than willing to circumvent glaring evidence that proved Zayn was carrying on a relationship with both Harry and Gigi at the same time. Those are the people I like to call intellectually dishonest, because they are more invested in a certain narrative playing out in a certain way than they are the actual truth or following where the facts lead. Those were the people who only pretended to be invested in Zarry for likes and views, and were willing to disregard their present day story to hold onto a false narrative of the past that painted Zayn in the best possible light, considering the circumstances of 2017.

Well those people suck and they were wrong, because ALL evidence (and there has been heaps of it after the band) led only to the logical conclusion that their relationship continued rather intensely after 1D died. In fact, their relationship WAS THE REASON 1D died.

Exhibit A:

Exhibit B:

Exhibit C:

Exhibit D:


Yes. By now it is hands down undeniable that Zarry have been singing about each other for years, long after One Direction ended. Probably even exclusively; meaning I don’t think they have ever really written about their public female partners (at least not in earnest.) I believe those women are PR tools and employees. Meaning contractual/non-contractual and witting/unwitting beards. (But that’s a story for another day.)


One of the first major connections I drew between Zayn and Harry when I first looked into their story after the band was “From The Dining Table” and “Dusk Till Dawn”. Two songs which read almost like companion pieces. They illustrate two halves of the same whole. Two sides of the same coin which detail their 2015 separation and estrangement, but also their reunion and determination to make things work no matter what. Even on the run.

So, random thought here, but I see someone else in the thread mentions Greg Kurstin. Didja happen to notice the lyrics to Adele’s “Go Easy on Me”? First time I heard it, the lyrics didn’t resonate with me for Adele.

Immediately, I thought Zarry, and then discovered the Greg Kurstin connection. Interesting lyrics: “There ain’t no gold in this river”, “I was still a child,” “we are both so deeply stuck in our ways” and, “But now I give up”. Anyone else find this interesting?

Merry Christmas to everyone. DTD is one of my favorites about Zayn and I think it’s his way of stepping away from the image people had of him when he left 1D when he says, “You don’t know me.” The briefcase for me represents everything that could not be or say by the contracts. I hope that now Zayn feels more free to be him and to be able to say what he wants.

Loved the post…. it made me see the video in new light and appreciate the genius of it.

Zayn is never direct and always makes things very ambiguous, but I kind of appreciate that. Harry said, “most songs are written for one listener”, and if that one person gets it then that’s what all matters. Plus, it’s always fun to crack a mystery and break the layers to find what lies underneath.

Also, DTD was a really cool and slick video. (I love Jemima Kirke… she and Adam Driver were my favourite on Girls)

I like the fact that Harry and Zayn are so different from eachother, as storytellers, musicians, people… they truly are yin and yang. As much as Harry made fun of that tattoo, I imagine him having one too at some hidden spot 😉

😂 You might not be too far off about the content in the briefcase being as valuable as a good quality drug. I was listening to Connexion while reading your post and he literally said, “Feels just like a drug, really fucked me up.” And went on to say that he’s like a fein waiting around whenever he’s a part from his lover and always give in to the fix when they’re back together. Lord the poetry. 😩❤️ So the briefcase definitely contains the secret of their love and what they have done to maintain it. Great content as always, AD.

This song is so beautiful and special to Zarry. Definitely one of my top favorite songs of Zayn’s. Also makes me look back and wonder about the time Harry wore his peace ring on DTD anniversary during his 2021 tour. He literally wore it ONCE on that day for the entirety of his tour and hasn’t worn it again since. I mean Harry being a sentimental person, I can see the connections there but who’s knows, I could be wrong. Regardless, this song holds a special place in my zarry heart♥️

That Harold whatever (lol I’m not gonna write it…) made laugh …

DTD is as direct as it can be to FTDT…

I have one more thing to say: listen DTD solo version, with the high note

Some crazy facts: DTD (the song) was co-written and produced by the famous Greg Kurstin (Sia, Adele). Later, Harry Styles also had a chance to work with Kurstin on our favourite Sunflower vol.6 ( Fine line album track). Seems symbolic how Harry has linked himself with his lover even further by commissioning Kurstin to produce specifically that track, which is basically a dancehall ode to Zayn. By the way, Kusrtin also plays electric sitar in ‘Sunflower’ recording – another link to Zayn (culturally).
Ironically, Kurstin won Producer of the Year at the Grammys for DTD and we all know how Zayn publicly despised the awards later.

Thanks for this Zarry food as usual it’s good. Now I have been listening to Adele new album, I realized that she was given some songs by ZAYN and Harry, this may sound sick, but then you all remember when ZAYN sing to Begin again with Angrid without ever meeting eachother. And now we have Harry once said he would like to work with Adele with his songs. The lyrics most of those songs are not related to Adele, she doesn’t have much history with man since we all know her excited. I thought I was mad at first but then I dig deeper I was in shock with what I find. Please AD listen to those songs and tells us what you think. Once I think about how real Zarry is, I feel like shouting to the world to recognise them, as man who happens to love eachother.

That is why I don’t think Zarry will ever finish, because they have tattoos for eachother, can you imagine looking at yourself in the mirror you realise you have a tattoo that belongs to someone, and when they hear music on the radio they know it was written for them, it becomes to difficult to ever move to other relationship. I came to understand Zayn can’t live without Harry’s love, Zayn needs Harry more than Harry needs ZAYN. 🌈🌈🌈🌈🐟

DTD will always be one of my favorite songs by Zayn. I also did like Pillowtalk but La Chapacabra#2 is in there…ruining the mv and everything…..fabulous song with a fabulous interpretation…..I think that’s a nice combo. Harold Tomlinson?? I know A.D these are dark times but you’ve got to see the light….I know you will! 😝

One of my favorites!! How can people be so blind? Dtd is probably one of thr most popular songs Z has made and people claim to be massive 1d stans and fail to pick up on the references. It’s so bloody direct. Great post as always. Also, I’ve always thought that the wig is a shot out to Sia, since she wasn’t in the video, what do you think?

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 I mean come on A.D, Harold Tomlinson!!!!! This shit just damn near blows my mind. They’ve been literally showing EVERYONE what they’re about from day one but Lord knows their are just some very dense individuals, unfortunately. I can’t even wrap my mind around the brilliancy. The romantic in me is blown away honestly, DTD is a masterpiece on it’s own but to truly understand it’s depth and meaning adds even more intrigue to an already beautiful song. Just…..mind blowing.

error: Nope!
