The animated teaser follows the life of a man from birth, who begins to lose sight of happiness as he grows older, panting as he desperately tries to keep up with the rat race as a snippet of the song plays.
“I wanna be happier / I wanted to be someone’s love / I wanted to be proud,” the duo sing in the short clip. ‘Happier’ will be the eighth track of Psy’s upcoming comeback record, ‘Psy 9th’.
‘Psy 9th’ is due out on April 29, and will mark the end of the singer’s five-year absence from music. The star will be revealing the album’s track list one song at a time. According to his latest incomplete graphic of the track list, the album will feature five other artists besides Crush.
He has also shared another music video teaser for ‘Everyday’, the tenth song off the upcoming 12-track record. That teaser had featured archival footage of the crowds at the singer’s past concerts.
A year after the release of his eighth full-length album ‘Psy 8th 4X2=8’ in 2017, the singer left longtime agency YG Entertainment. Psy later established his own company P Nation in early 2019, and in the same year he signed Korean-American rapper and singer Jessi, HyunA and former PENTAGON member DAWN to the label.
P Nation now houses several other notable South Korean stars, including Crush, Heize, Penomeco and Swings. The agency has also previously shared plans to debut its first boyband later this year.
