Many international music talents have contributed to make Psy's next song, said Yang Hyun-suk, chief producer of YG Entertainment on Sunday, as he unveiled some of the details of the "Gangnam Style" star's new work.
"So many of the big name stars, who no one can ever dream of, have contributed their talents", said Yang.
"These are the artists who Psy has dreamed of".
He then said that the song may also be written in the Korean language.
"We don't know yet if the song is going to be in Korean or in English, but we don't feel the need to release a song in English", he said.
As Psy released an EP with only one song, "Gentleman", in April, he is again considering releasing just one song off his next EP.
"We haven't decided if the upcoming work will be an EP or a regular album, but generally speaking, the pop scene in the United States has been following the trend to release EPs", he said
Global star Psy is getting ready to surprise the world once again. He is aiming to release another album in September, said his agency, YG Entertainment, according to local media reports.
The singer is working with composer Yoo Gun-hyung, whom he collaborated with on with his global hit song "Gangnam Style" and "Gentleman".
One of the officials at the agency was quoted as saying that he will put together multiple songs together instead of releasing just a single song, according to reports.
"As far as I understand, Psy already has some songs that he likes", said the official.
It has been said that it is about time for him to produce an album for a solo performance as he needs more songs to perform at the major events he gets invited to across the world.
