Psy goes back to own style for new songs
GANGNAM Style singer Psy and his label's boss are set for a fresh start to emphasise his unique musical style in upcoming song releases, the local media reported yesterday.
Yang Hyun Suk, YG Entertainment's chief executive, has frequently met the singer, suggesting that Psy's comeback is imminent.
"For the past two years, Psy was confused (about) his identity - between being a Korean singer or an American singer," Mr Yang was quoted as saying.
"I was experiencing the same too. I tried to take into consideration both Korea and the United States when creating the songs - Gentleman and Hangover - that came after Gangnam Style. But in doing so, I wasn't able to fully express Psy's unique charm and style in these songs."
Psy, who made his debut in 2001, agreed with his CEO's position and was also gearing up for a fresh start. "It was a great experience to travel around the world and being treated as a global star," Psy, 37, was quoted as saying.
"But the happiest time of my life was going around the university festivals."
Psy, whose 2012 Gangnam Style made him a global star, is preparing to return to the music scene with new songs, an acquaintance of the singer was quoted as saying.
