Psy fans in Korea will be the first ones to hear the follow-up to the rapper’s 2012 smash hit “Gangnam Style.”
The singer announced that he would be releasing his new single on April 13 at his solo concert in Seoul, “Happening,” adding that fans in Korea would get the chance to hear the new song first before anyone else.
According to YG Entertainment, Psy will be releasing his new single on April 12 in Korea.
“Psy expressed his wish to reveal the song first to Korean fans, who have supported him from the very beginning,” said YG Entertainment. The early release will allow Korean fans who will attend the concert the next day to enjoy the song beforehand.
YG Entertainment is currently trying to find a strategic way to prevent any leak of the track internationally and online.
Meanwhile, the global release will be on April 13 at “Happening,” a YouTube-broadcast concert at Seoul World Cup Stadium.
Last week, Psy revealed a video on YouTube in which he stated, “My new single will release all over the world on April 13. I will be holding my ‘Happening’ concert to celebrate the release of my new single.” In the video, he repeats the same message in Korean and English and is seen dancing to “Gangnam Shake,” his rendition of the “Harlem Shake.”
Tickets for the concert went on sale on Interpark on March 11.
