Zayn will be released on November 1 and will include personal photographs and drawings.

Zayn quit the group in 2015 and released his solo debut, Mind Of Mine, earlier this year.

He cancelled scheduled concerts in the United Kingdom and Dubai in recent months because of "extreme anxiety around major live solo performances".

The singer-songwriter said he wrote an autobiography so his fans "can judge me on my own terms, not on what the press or anyone else says".
