PSY ( Releases Follow-Up Single to ‘Gangnam Style’: Listen
The 35-year-old finished shooting the music video for “Gentleman” on Tuesday. It was shot in various locations around Seoul, much like “Gangnam Style,” which famously became the most watched video ever on YouTube and the first to garner over one billion views. Earlier, PSY was quoted by YG Entertainment as saying the new dance will “be largely in a Korean style.”
“Gentleman” will be officially released in 119 countries around the world Friday, April 12 at midnight. Once New Zealand (thanks to its early time zone location) got the first taste, the single quickly spread around the internet. PSY had originally planned on unveiling “Gentleman” in Korea on Friday and then the rest of the world the following day. But he reset the time to midnight Thursday (GMT +9 hours) on iTunes and local music websites to lessen confusion for fans and onlookers, said YG Entertainment.
He will hold a concert dubbed “Happening” at a sports stadium in western Seoul on Saturday before going on an international tour to promote the new track.
