The Not Nineteen Forever rocker has shared videos playing the piano, while teasing an announcement tonight.

Liam Fray has teased what appears to be brand new material online.

The Courteeners frontman has taken to Instagram to share two short videos of himself playing the piano.

Watch the first clip above.

The second video saw the Not Nineteen Forever rocker share a bit more information, singing while playing the instrument in a video which he captioned: "Hanging Off Your Cloud".

The clips have led to speculation that the Manchester outfit could be working on material for their next album and the follow-up to 2016's Mapping The Rendezvous.

If that wasn't enough to get fans talking, the Cavorting frontman shared an image of the trio while teasing an announcement this evening.

See his image, which he captioned: "Monday 29th Oct. 6pm."

Meanwhile, Courteeners will embark on string of gigs in arenas across the UK this November and December, which culminate in a show at London's O2 Academy Brixton on Saturday 1 December.

It marks the fifth time Courteeners have headlined the South London venue.

“We really feel at the top of our game at the moment,” frontman Liam Fray told Radio X’s Gordon Smart.

“We did TRNSMT and Neighbourhood Weekender and they were next level. We feel in a really good place. It’s as if someone had a masterplan ten years ago!”

“It’s been a while, so let’s get back out there. We’re doing quite a few arenas, which is big for us, because we’re this tiny little band from Manchester who no-one knows about.”

Asked if fans could expect to hear some new songs, Fray revealed: "There should be at least some songs being played on the road that are new, and there will be some new music I would expect before the end of the year…”

Supporting them on tour will be Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Cinnamon (apart from Leicester on the 20th) and Zuzu.
