Originally the song was only due to release in his native Korea, but after an outcry from fans and music reps, his record label decided to release the single worldwide on iTunes in 119 countries at the same time - midnight in South Korea.

After the release, Psy will perform the single this weekend at his "Happening" concert on Saturday April 13 in front of an estimated 50,000 people at Seoul's World Cup stadium.

But don't worry if you can't make it to the concert, it will be streamed live on the internet.
