Admit it: You danced at least once to PSY’s “Gangnam Style” in 2012 … and you loved every second of it. The South Korean rapper’s hit infiltrated classrooms and offices, and for a while, nary a day went by without hearing at least a small segment of the song on the radio, in movies, or in commercials.

Now, PSY has announced that he’ll release his first album since the hit. Chiljip PSY-Da, which translates to This is PSY’s Seventh Album, debuts tomorrow.

“There were many thoughts going around in my head, including thoughts like, ‘If I write like this, it would note be as good as “Gangnam Style,”‘ and ‘if I write like this, the international audience will not understand,’ so it took me a very long time to organize all those thoughts into one,” PSY said at a news conference in Seoul today, according to the Associated Press.

The AP also reports that the new album will include multiple genres, including hip-hop and punk.

The collection features guest appearances from Ed Sheeran, will.i.am, Zion.T, and CL, who appears on the album’s recently released song, “Daddy.” See the video:
