Zayn Malik's new music video has officially dropped and, we must say, it's pretty epic.

'Dusk Till Dawn' was teased back at the end of August for Malik's MTV Video Music Award 'thank you' video, following his win for 'Best Collaboration' with Taylor Swift for their hit single 'I Don't Wanna Live Forever'.

All we knew then was...well, nothing.

Last week, we got a little bit more information about the video via a Pulp Fiction-inspired cartoon poster posted onto his Instagram.

The post revealed that not only was his new song to be called 'Dusk Till Dawn', but also that it featured hit-maker Sia and would star none-other than Girls actress Jemima Kirke.

Talk about a stellar line-up, right?

Kirke has been a rather prolific music video actress over the summer, this being the third she's starred in.

She first made an appearance in her sister Lola Kirke's music video for 'Not Used' (which she also directed) and Alex Cameron's 'Stranger's Kiss'.

In 'Stranger's Kiss' Kirke convincingly mirrors the singer as a stalker, while in 'Not Used' she manically works out to the country song.

Earlier this week, we got a first glimpses into Malik's new video which revealed the plot involved some sort of heist and Kirke in full disguise.

Yesterday, the Bradford-born star warned fans he was about to drop the new video with yet another scintillating video and, lo and behold, released the video right on time this afternoon.

The cinematic clip sees Malik following Kirke's character through streets, both carrying a briefcase.

Unfortunately, anonymous agents are thwarting his progress and question him in a dimly lit warehouse.

Here we get a look into Malik's acting chops which, from the looks of it, aren't too shabby and could certainly rival his former One Direction bandmate Harry Styles' recent acting skills in Christopher Nolan's summer blockbuster Dunkirk.

Near the end of the video, we spot that both Kirke and Malik sport the same tattoo and are in on the same heist. After duping the agents to a false location with some Home Alone-style tricks, Malik and Kirke make a getaway in sports cars.

If we weren't so invested in the Gigi and Zayn love-story we might be pushing for a Kirke-Malik partnership.

Obviously Malik's fans have already gone mad for the music video - not that we blame them.

Zayn Malik is back and better than ever, people.
