  • “Gangnam Style” singer Psy is set to release his eighth album on April 29 at 6 p.m.
  • His last album, “4X2=8,” was released five years ago.
  • “To be honest, I produced ‘Champion’ in 2002, and it took me exactly 10 years to produce a song that is more sensational than that,” the artist says in a promotional video uploaded to Instagram on Tuesday. “‘Gangnam Style’ was released in 2012. I guess what I’m trying to say is that perhaps the next time you’ll meet a song like ‘Gangnam Style’ will be in 2022.”

Psy is making a comeback to K-pop with a new album this month, 10 years after his hit song “Gangnam Style” catapulted him and his signature horse-riding dance into the global spotlight.

The South Korean artist announced on Tuesday that his eighth album would be released on April 29 at 6 p.m. The title of the album is still under wraps.
