Musician Zayn Malik has penned his autobiography and it’s to be released sooner than you might expect. The 23 year old former One Direction singer, who’s in a relationship with supermodel Gigi Hadid, launched his solo career with an album just eight months ago after departing the band in early 2014 and has hit the headlines lately with cancellations of his concert dates due to ”extreme anxiety.”
“I’m going to show you as much as I can so that you can judge me on my own terms, not on what the press or anyone else says.”
Illustrated with memories from his childhood, exclusive photographs, song lyrics, stories and drawings, this book will reveal a side to the Mind of Mine artist, Zayn Malik, that we haven’t really been able to grasp in the public eye. The book is said to be a true autobiography with the content touching on each moment of his life; his upbringing in Bradford and indeed his success in the music industry. As fans may have seen in the One Direction film ‘This Is Us’, Zayn is evidently the quieter band member, he displays his creative side with art and indeed that’s what he has brought to his autobiography i.e. a personal touch.
After rumours for some time while Zayn had been travelling the world on tour with One Direction, he finally announced he was departing the band the March of 2014. Following the news, in his statement he said: “After five years, I feel like it is now the right time for me to leave the band. I’d like to apologise to the fans if I’ve let anyone down, but I have to do what feels right in my heart.” One Direction had phenomenal success after coming in just third place in the X Factor final, Series 7. Zayn continued to fuel his interest in developing his own singing career and on March 25th 2016, he released his first album ‘Mind of Mine.’ It had its own success and many chart-topping singles off the record. In more recent times, he has spoke out about his mental health and the difficulty his anxiety poses to performing at live venues. A number of his gigs have been cancelled as of late. Malik is also in a relationship with supermodel and daughter of Yolanda Hadid and David Foster, Gigi Hadid.
