PSY Teases New Album’s Tracklist
Korean YouTube Sensation’s Eighth Offering is Packed with Superstar Collabs
It was the irritatingly catchy song that ‘pony-danced’ its way into the global consciousness, and came with a video that remains to this date, the most watched YouTube clip ever. Do we even need to say its name? From 2012 to somewhere during 2014, everybody loved a bit of Gangam Style - we had to, it was ubiquitous.
Quick reminiscence aside, PSY is back in 2017 with his eighth album, “4x2=8”, and it’s packed with big name collaborations. Having teased it since March, when he announced a new album during a concert in the Philippines, he’s been drip-feeding information through the usual social channels, and now we know the full, star-studded track list.
It features the likes of BIGBANG’s G-Dragon, who co-wrote and sings on ‘Fact Violence’, iKON’s B.I and Bobby who are both on ‘Bomb’, and Kush who co-wrote and composed ‘We Are Young’. Also there are Epik High’s Tablo, who wrote lyrics on ‘Auto Reverse’ and actress Lee Syung Kyung, who sings on ‘Last Scene’. We can’t wait to hear it, and we’re sure the videos are going to be on-point for fun as always. It’s out on May 10.
