A music industry insider said on the 24 to Daily Sports, “PSY is releasing a new song after one year of hiatus in his performance and making a surprise comeback”.
PSY has a schedule for music video shooting this week: for three days in Korea. As it is a surprise comeback, the schedule and location of the music video shooting are strictly kept secret. Notably, as the music video of “Gangnam Style” is soon to reach 2.6 billion views and “Gentleman”, 1 billion views, PSY’s new music video is drawing big attention not just in Korea but also overseas.
PSY’s new song is released one year after his 7th full album “Chiljip PSY-da” released on December 1 last year. The 7th full album presented original “PSY songs” such as “DADDY” and “NAPAL BAJI”, to sweep No.1 on music charts without any TV appearance and the music videos surpassed 100 million views on YouTube. It is not an exaggeration to say that music fans around the world see that the release of PSY’s new album equals a new record.
Everything about the surprise new song is thoroughly kept secret. Except for PSY’s comeback in November and music video shooting this week, all the other information including the concept and staff for the new song are all kept confidential. One more thing that is known is that PSY will hold a concert in Korea in December, after the release of the new song in November. The concert is also held one year after his previous concert which was held on December 24 to 26 last year at Seoul Gymnastics Arena.
After joining the ranks of world-famous stars with the “Gangnam Style” sensation in 2012, PSY has set new records over and over again. Six of his videos have surpassed the 100 million views mark: “DADDY”, “Gangnam Style”, “Gentleman”, “HANGOVER”, “Oppa Just My Style”, and “Gangnam Style@Summer Stand Live Concert”, which is a record that has never been set by any other world-famous singers.
