In addition to the new photo, the guys also updated their bio to reflect their new music. "In April 2015 the band started working on their 5th studio album set to be released later in the year," the bio now states.
In a statement released following Malik's departure from the band, 1D noted that new music was in the works. And Niall Horan later teased these writing sessions on social media in the days following the band's member shake-up.
In an interview with The Sun, Styles noted the remaining members were looking forward to working on new music.
"It's very exciting to be working on our fifth album," Styles said earlier this month. "It shows how incredible the fans have been. A huge thank you to them for everything they've done for us. All the love to them."
