Katy Perry has launched her new record label in cooperation with Capitol Records. It’s called Metamorphosis Music.
On its first day of existence, Metamorphosis Music released a self-titled EP from pop singer Ferras.
So, here are the details.
Katy and Ferras met in 2007 when both were newly signed artists to Capitol Records. Over the years, their friendship evolved. When Katy was ready to launch Metamorphosis Music, she knew the Jordan-born, L.A.-based singer, songwriter, and musician should be her first artist.
“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,” Katy said of Ferras.
Katy also duets with Ferras on one song on the EP (the Greg Wells-produced “Legends Never Die”), and she also served as its executive producer.
“Her instincts are really on point,” Ferras says. “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.”
If these are not teenage dreams coming true, then what is?
She’s a globally recognized pop star, and now she is helping others fulfill their music career dreams. Good girl Katy.
