"Gentleman," the new single from South Korean wunderkind PSY is due for official release tomorrow, but the song already has leaked online.

The 35-year-old creator of the most-watched song ever on YouTube is due to unveil the new track in a concert performance during a sold-out concert Saturday in Seoul.

"Gentleman" is cut from the same dancefloor Spandex as PSY's massive hit "Gangnam Style" -- the first video on YouTube to reach 1 billion views -- with a pounding beat, a crescendo of static and sirens, and a slightly cocky lyric.

Like the horsey dance in his first international hit, "Gentleman" apparently also comes with a new set of dance moves. PSY was quoted by YG Entertainment as saying the new dance will "be largely in a Korean style."

Will you listen to this one as often as you listened to "Gangnam Style"?
