Los Angeles: Pop star Justin Bieber, who released his last studio album in 2012, has announced that he is ready to start making new tracks.
The 19-year-old 'Baby' hitmaker was on a vacation in St Matin with his on-and-off girlfriend Selena Gomez, reports suggest.
"I've been on this break for too long. #newmusic #back2work #vacationtimesup #longoverdue," Bieber posted on Instagram.
The 20-year-old singer first hinted that he would be returning to the recording studio earlier this week when he perforated tissue in his ear after leaping off a cliff.
Bieber broke the news of his painful injury to his 55.1 million followers on Twitter but quickly reassured fans it would not have any long-term effects on his career.
"Busted my ear drum cliff diving. Doc says might need surgery now.(sic). My ear drum might back us up a little but I'm still bringing you this new music. Much love. Damn u cliff diving! (sic," he had said.
