'Gangnam Style' singer psy is to reveal the follow-up to his viral mega-hit at midnight tonight (April 11).

The unveiling will take place ahead of a huge concert in Seoul, South Korea on Saturday (April 13), at which more than 50,000 fans are expected to pack Seoul's World Cup Stadium to see Psy perform live. The performance will be live streamed on YouTube with fans around the world able to tune in and watch the show. In the UK, viewers will need to tune in to YouTube at 10.30am. Psy said, illuminatingly, "I'm going to release a new single worldwide at the same time! I’m also going to have a concert in Korea on April 13, 2013, at the Seoul World Cup Stadium which you can watch live on YouTube. Just for you!"

A video for the track will be revealed shortly, with Psy working alongside the same choreographer who created the famous "horse dance" seen in the 'Gangnam Style' video. "We wrapped the music video shoot on Tuesday and it's in the editing phase right now," YG Entertainment public relations representative Hwang Min-hee told CNN. "It's rather difficult to say when it will be released because we don't know how long the editing will take." The 'Gentleman' video will also feature K-Pop girl group member Ga-In of Brown-eyed Girls.

'Gangnam Style' has picked up some unlikely fans with Dave Grohl claiming the song is one of the best tracks of the past decade and Liam Gallagher declaring it an "absolute classic".
