  • PSY to Release New Album Globally Early Next Year
  • [2012-11-08]
  • World star PSY has announced he will be releasing an international album early next year.

    The star, who is currently in France, gave a press conference in front of reporters from 80 media groups on November 6th, saying he is currently working on a new album that will be released by next March at the latest. He added that the album will be in Korea and English, saying it will be his worldwide debut album.

    The previous day, PSY had participated in a “Gangnam Style” flash mob with 20,000 others in front of Eiffel Tower. He mentioned the excitement he felt during the event saying it was the first time for him to be in a flash mob with so many people.




    He added that he didn’t believe a lot of what he saw online, saying despite “Gangnam Style” reaching over 650 million hits on Youtube he didn’t think he was famous in France yet. PSY mentioned that his female fans in France speak Korean well, adding that he was moved by them singing “Gangnam Style” in Korean. He said since he is Korean, he tries to maintain the use of Korean in his songs.

    When asked about the success of other Korean groups in the international music scene, PSY said other K-pop stars have knocked on the doors of the European and U.S. markets. He said his success was not because of anything he did, but through the people who have listened to and enjoyed his music, so other K-pop stars will also be able to achieve success.

    During the 30 minute press conference, PSY talked honestly about his musical background and his twelve years as a singer.

    French media including, Le Parisien, reported on the flash mob in front of Eiffel Tower extensively saying 20,000 fans gathered at Trocadero Square to see PSY’s “horse-riding” dance.

    PSY finished promotional activities in France with the press conference and headed over to England on November 7th, beginning his schedule there with a speech in front of students at Oxford University. [Yonhap]
