Psy is making a comeback and he’s making sure that it’s a grand one.
Aside from enlisting the help of actor Lee Byung Hun and APINK’s Naeun, Psy will also be collaborating with Block B’s Zico on one of his tracks. This was revealed to the public via Psy’s partial track list, which was dropped today (4th May).
Zico will be working with Psy on “I Luv It”, the first track off the latter’s 8th studio album. Other than “I Luv It”, details for his title track “New Face” were also released. The song is said to be about “wanting someone new” and is composed by Psy and Yoo Gun Hyung, who co-wrote and co-produced “Gangnam Style”.
With the song slated to be released a day after the South Korean Presidential Election, it seems to be hinting at the country’s desire for change.
UPDATE (5th May):
Psy has revealed details of 2 more tracks off his album!
The 3rd song, titled “Last Scene (마지막장면)”, will feature model and actress Lee Sung Kyung. However, that’s not the only surprise as iKON’s B.I also co-wrote the lyrics with Psy. Meanwhile, BIGBANG’s Taeyang will be singing alongside Psy on the 4th track, “Love”.
Psy will also be making his return to variety shows soon, as he’s slated to appear on the 13th May episode of JTBC’s “Knowing Bros”. It will be his first variety show appearance in 5 years.
Psy’s 8th studio album will drop on 10th May, along with the music video for “New Face”. The MV will also star Lee Byung Hun and Naeun.
