Justin Bieber has triggered a frenzy among his fans by announcing that he is about to release new music.

The Canadian heartthrob – who recently cancelled the rest of his Purpose world tour – posted messages on his Twitter and Instagram accounts announcing: “New music. Thursday noon.”

Bieber, 23, posted artwork showing two birds holding a smiling worm, entitled Friends, which is thought to be the name of the new track.

The star’s latest offering is a collaboration with producer BloodPop.

Bieber’s fans – dubbed Beliebers – have not been able to contain their excitement.

“OMG YESSSSSSSSSS I AM SO EXCITED!!!!” one person wrote on Instagram.

“It’s gonna be lit as always,” predicted another.

Another follower tweeted a picture of Bieber with a crown on his head alongside the caption: “Legend.”

Earlier this month Bieber told fans he had called off his remaining tour dates in part because he wanted to have a “sustainable” career and future.

The singer had been touring in support of his album Purpose for 18 months, playing more than 150 shows, but axed the final 14 scheduled performances.

Pouring out his heart in an open letter posted online, he said: “Me taking this time right now is me saying I want to be SUSTAINABLE.

“I want my career to be sustainable, but I also want my mind heart and soul to be sustainable.

“So that I can be the man I want to be, the husband I eventually want to be and the father I want to be.”
