The couple announced their split in July after two years together, and a year after welcoming their son Bear.
But Liam, 25, is holding no hard feelings – despite his exs song Love Made Me Do It including lyrics like: I fall in love with every fucker.
The Strip That Down singer tweeted: Congratulations @CherylOfficial on your first release in 4 years cant wait for everyone to hear the rest.

Liam added a rose emoji, which is basically the social media version of sending a bouquet, right?
Fans freaked out over the gentlemanly tribute, with one person writing: Supportive ex boyfriend, we stan!
Released four months after her split from Liam, Love Made Me Do It references Cheryls marriages to Ashley Cole and Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini and her extensive tattoo collection, which she claims are marks of how far shes come.
In the first verse, Cheryl sings: Ive been the bad girl, Ive been the good wife, and Ive fallen hard like a million times/ On number seven of my nine lives/ The ink on my skin, is all the places Ive been.
The mum-of-one also suggests her friends are annoyed about her constant break-ups, singing: All my friends are like “woah girl, stop”/ Cause theyre the ones who pick the pieces up.
While Cheryl admits she falls in love with every fucker, she insists that the song isnt about one ex in particular.
Speaking on Jessie Wares Table Manners, Cheryl said: Actually all the music and all the songs that Ive got ready were done way before we split – none of them are about anybody. I wasnt sat writing a love poem to anyone or about anybody.
Its something that anyone whos been in love will be able to relate to in some way or another.
Its catchy and its fun. Its not about one specific person or relationship. Its more about me being the lover of love that I am. I just love love!
