psy has revealed he is collaborating with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler.

In June the K-pop singer met Queen's Brian May to discuss a possible collaboration and now he has teamed up with another of his rock idols.

"I just finished recording my next song with a legendary artist, Steven Tyler from Aerosmith," Psy told L'Uomo Vogue. "When I was in middle school, I literally cried when they were singing 'Crazy' or 'Amazing' or whatever, they were my lifetime role models, and now I am collaborating with Steven Tyler, what the fuck, man? I love my life."

The singer hinted that further big name collaborations could be in the pipeline too by saying: "I am doing a lot of recordings in studios here in LA, and I got a lot of transactions and relations with a lot of US artists." Fans should expect to hear new material "maybe by November", Psy added.

During the interview with L'Uomo Vogue, Psy also explained that he had "a huge rock mania" growing up, citing Queen, Bon Jovi, Aerosmith and Guns N' Roses as influences. He then singled out Queen's Freddie Mercury as a particular inspiration, adding: "His songwriting skills, I cannot even approach, but his showmanship, everything I know about the stage, I learned it from his videos."
