Zayn Malik has released part one of a graphic novel-style concept to accompany his new album.
Taking to Instagram, the singer, 28, whose newborn daughter’s name was revealed on Thursday to be Khai, posted the animation, which depicted what appeared to be two versions of Zayn himself, driving a car.
He revealed it to be titled ‘Calamity’ and explained it as ‘A Comic Book Inspired By Nobody Is Listening’ which is the name of his third studio album.
The video sees an animated man speeding along in a car, with the caption: ‘A madman has been chasing me for the past hour!
‘When I go faster he comes closer!’
The cars speed along the road at night, the front vehicle containing a drawing that bears a resemblance to the ex-One Direction star.

The web page encouraged fans to check back for new pages every week.
Calamity is the first track from the new album, suggesting there will be another 10 comic book pages released over the next few weeks, dedicated to each song.
Nobody Is Listening was released last week and Zayn described it as his ‘most personal project to date’.
