Discussing his new single on Korean TV, he said: "I've been working and reworking on it continuously and I think the latest version will be the final one.

"This is another very rousing song. Its title is Gentleman. The dance is one known to all Koreans but new to foreigners. This will be presented in PSYstyle."

Track caused a stir on Twitter

PSY plans to unveil the new song at a concert, dubbed the "HAPPENING", on 13 April and has asked fans to wear white to the special gig held in his native South Korean capital, Seoul.
