YG Entertainment said the South Korean singer-rapper, whose real name is Park Jae-sang, will release his new album on May 10. The company uploaded a teaser image with a cartoon image of Psy and the date on its official blog.

“Look forward to new songs and videos filled with Psy’s trademark excitement and energy,” YG said.
