Zayn Malik has told fans that his new album is finished in a rather subtle comment on Instagram.

Posting a selfie with the caption: 'When life throws you lemons, catch em so they don't hit you in the f**king face!" a cheeky fan responded: "OR WHEN LIFE THROWS YOU LEMONS MAKE AN ALBUM BOO."

The pop star responded: "Albums [sic] been done. Just working on my videos ladies calm it, calm it."

Last year Malik released the first single from the album, "Dusk Til Dawn" ft Sia and complete with an action-packed music video. It sounds as though Malik intends to release at least two more singles with videos before releasing the follow-up to his chart-topping record Mind of Mine.

The CEO of Malik's label RCA, Peter Edge, praised the new material and said it had "a more optimistic tone" to it.

Malik and his former girlfriend Gigi Hadid recently confirmed they had broken up after more than two years together.

The singer confirmed reports in a tweet where he said they had an "incredibly meaningful, loving and fun relationship".

"I have a huge amount of respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman and a friend," Malik wrote in a statement on Twitter. "I'm grateful to all of our fans for respecting this difficult decision and our privacy at this time, we wish this news could have come from us first."

In a separate statement Hadid added: "I'm forever grateful for the love, time and life lessons that Z and I shared. I want nothing but the best for him and will continue to support him as a friend that I have immense respect and love for."
