The former One Direction star inked a deal with publisher Penguin Random House, and he will be releasing a book simply titled Zayn on 1 November (16).
Malik will open up about his childhood in England, coming into the public eye as a contestant on The X Factor UK, his rise to teen heartthrob as a member of One Direction, and his transition into a solo artist.
The 23-year-old parted ways with the boy band last year (15), just months before the rest of the One Direction stars – Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne and Niall Horan – began their indefinite hiatus as a group in December (15).
In addition to the new book, Malik is also working with Law & Order creator Dick Wolf on Boys, a TV series centred on a fictional boy band and the highs and lows that come with a meteoric rise in success, fame and public scrutiny.
The pop star is also serving as an executive producer on the series.
