It looks like One Direction are truly moving on as a four-piece now that Zayn Malik is gone – and are diving in on writing their new album! Yesterday, a flurry of excited tweets/Instagram posts from a couple of the guys gave a hint at what they were working on, and they were full of hope and possibility. Who needs a fifth guy, anyway? (Kidding. We miss Zayn terribly.)

Liam Payne tweeted (and Louis Tomlinson retweeted): "1st day writing the album it's gunna be a great day!"

He later noted: "Huge day of writing so excited the team never stop!," adding, "Wonder what tomorrow's writing will bring"

Louis posted a pic on Instagram of himself with Liam, hard at work, with the caption: "1st day back writing !!"

Will the guys write a song about Zayn though? A source told that the group is "toying with a song inspired by Zayn quitting the band. It wouldn't be a diss track or call him out by name or anything like that." The insider added: "The discussions have just been about channeling the emotions surrounding the situation in to a song. You write what you know and his leaving was a big moment in their lives."

A source also tells HollywoodLife that the guys are determined that the fifth album "will be their biggest success yet." The insided noted, "Harry really wants to make his mark as a songwriter and show he's a talented one at that. He knows this album could make or break his future musical career and is taking it very seriously."

We can't wait to hear their new music!
