Psy out with new album September
SEOUL, South Korea - South Korea's "Gangnam Style" rapper Psy plans to release a new album in September and says he already recorded three songs for the project.
"already done with 3 songs and they are kinda nice," the singer announced on his Twitter account on Tuesday, July 30.

His agent said the singer was working on the as-yet untitled album in Los Angeles.
"Gangnam Style," released a year ago, made Psy an international star. It is currently the most popular video on You Tube with 1.7 billion views.
His follow-up video and single "Gentleman" was less successful, but still managed to top the charts worldwide and has racked up 500 million views since its release in April.
In a recent interview with the "Sunday Times" magazine, Psy hinted at an alcohol dependency, describing soju – a Korean liquor brewed from sweet potatoes – as his "best friend" and "vice partner."
"If I'm happy, I'm drinking. If I'm sad, I'm drinking. If it's raining, I'm drinking. If it's sunny, I'm drinking. If it's hot, I'm drinking. If it's cold, I'm drinking," he told the British newspaper.
Those are not the lyrics to one of his new songs.
Psy takes a break from liquor "when I'm hungover," he said.
