Back in December, there was buzz around a new Zayn Malik single reportedly entitled "Hurt," after word got out that a song by that name had been registered with Broadcast Music, Incorporated. Though we have yet to see the former One Direction member drop that supposed single, it looks like he's up to something.

In a series of five Instagram videos posted on Tuesday (February 20), Zayn displays his piano playing and crooning abilities as he shares snippets from what can only be new music. The first three videos focus on piano keys as the pop star's voice quietly soars over the music. The last two have been zoomed out a bit to show his hands as he gracefully strikes the keys.

Although we are unsure if this is the highly anticipated "Hurt," it looks like Zayn fans are going to be receiving some sort of new music from the singer sooner rather than later.

Zayn released his debut solo album Mind of Mine in March 2016 and has discussed working on his sophomore album publicly. In August, he told Billboard, “I feel like my songwriting definitely developed. Just because I’ve been doing it so much. I feel like the songs are a bit more organized, where I felt like, before, that Mind of Mine was a brainstorm."

"That’s why I called it Mind of Mine, because it was ideas that I had that I put out," he continued. "This one is more thought out. I had more time to process everything and go through it all. It’s an evolution.”
