Zayn Malik has shared the first excerpt from his new autobiography. Read it on NME first below.
The former One Direction turned solo sensation releases his first autobiography Zayn on 1 November – telling the story of his childhood in Bradford to his runaway success.
Read the first cut from the book below:
“Every lyric I’ve ever written has a story behind it. All the hard work that went into the creation of ‘Pillowtalk’ was worthwhile because, as soon as it was finished, I intuitively felt I was on the right path. It was a sick cut, nailing the exact sound I wanted to capture in my music. I was also able to sing about a subject that I hadn’t really been able to go near while I was in One Direction: sex.”
