Katy Perry starts her own record label with Capitol Records, signs friend Ferras

By Gina DiFalco,

Katy Perry is slowly taking over the music industry. The “Dark Horse” singer has revealed she is launching her own record label in conjunction with Capitol Records called Metamorphosis Music.

The first artist the pop star has signed to her own label is Ferras, whose EP was released on Tuesday. Ferras is a close friend of hers who was signed to Capitol Records around the same time as she was back in 2007.

On his self-titled EP, which Perry executive produced, she duets with him on the track “Legends Never Die.”

She said in a statement, "Ferras is a man with a message, and a unique lyrical way of communicating his perspective on life that makes you feel connected to every note when you listen. ‘Speak in Tongues’ is a song with raw emotional power that I wish I wrote. I believe he is going to be an important artist to watch unfold. I am so ecstatic the world gets to hear his music now both online and on tour with me,” The Hollywood Reporter reports.

In return, Ferras said of Perry, “Her instincts are really on point. She is very blunt and doesn’t sugar-coat things, which I appreciate. Also, she gave me the freedom to do what I wanted musically and was a natural partner.”

According to the AP, Ferras will accompany Perry on her Prismatic World Tour, but just for the North American leg. The tour begins on June 22 and ends Oct. 11.
