Katy Perry is sharing the wealth, launching her own record label, Metamorphosis Music, this week.
Launching with her first artist, Ferras, the "Roar" singer broke the news Tuesday with not only confirmation that Ferras will be joining her on tour, but the release of Ferras' self-titled EP and a new song titled "Legends Never Die."
"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," Perry shared in a statement.
Perry is not only head at the label, which has distribution through Capitol Records, she is the executive producer on Ferras' debut.
"Her instincts are really on point," Ferras shared. "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."
Ferras will open for Perry on her forthcoming Prismatic World Tour, which kicks off June 22 in Raleigh, NC. The tour will run through October.
