PSY, the global phenomenon that brought you "Gangnam Style" (and all those wacky pistachio commercials) today releases his seventh studio album, PSY 7th Album. The record features Ed Sheeran, will.i.am, and PSY's YG Entertainment label-mate, CL of 2NE1, Xia of JYJ and Zion T.
The album's two singles and accompanying videos are wild fun. "Daddy," which features some questionable scenes where PSY fake shoots kids in a school, is aiming for "Gangam"'s" view numbers, about to crest 7 million views since dropping yesterday. It's an instantly addictive crunk dance anthem featuring all the "surreal pop-art eccentricities" you've come to know and love. "Napal Baji" is a neo-disco Asian night club banger, and both videos include several dance scenes involving a toilet.
In a recent statement, the superstar had this to say about the new effort: "'Daddy' was completed in March last year. Seven seasons have gone by and I'm not even Beethoven. I've made many changes and put in a lot of thought into it. But I made 'Napal Baji' really quick after performing at a festival," going on to say, "I think it will be fun. One song was very difficult to make and the other wasn't. People often say that it is the easy-made songs that do well, but we'll have to see."
The album is out everywhere worldwide.
