PSY set to release 1st album since Gangnam Style.

Seoul: Gangnam Style star Psy acknowledged on Monday that he could never repeat the phenomenal global success of his 2012 hit, but said he was perfectly happy being “just another” K-pop artist.SEOUL — South Korean rapper PSY, who is set to release his first album since becoming an international sensation more than three years ago with the smash hit Gangnam Style, says the pressure to live up to that success caused him to take his time with his next project. “There were many thoughts going around in my head, including thoughts like `If I write like this, it would be not as good as Gangnam Style’, and `If I write like this, the international audience will not understand’, so it took me a very long time to organise all those thoughts into one,’’ PSY said at a news conference in Seoul today (Nov 30), a day before Chiljip PSY-Da debuts.

The quirky South Korean singer was catapulted to unlikely international stardom after the Gangnam Style music video, with its invisible horse-riding dance, went viral. Chiljip PSY-Da — which means “This Is PSY’s Seventh Album” in Korean — comes about a year and a half after the release of his single Gentleman. The song — a satire of the luxury lifestyle of residents in Seoul’s glitzy Gangnam district — remains the most-watched video of all time on YouTube, with more than 2.4 billion views.

It contains nine songs including the double-titles Daddy and Bell Bottoms — both dance tunes. “Because this is an album that retains my continued desire as a lyric writer who wants to try things other than love songs in a movie-like way, there are several genres,” he said. Before Gangnam Style conquered the globe, Psy had already been an established star at home for more than a decade, famous for provocative lyrics and rambunctious stage performances.
