Not long ago, Katy Perry said she’d like to have her own record label. Well, now her dream has come true. It’s called Metamorphosis Music, and it’s a joint venture between her and her label, Capitol Records.
Katy’s first signing is Ferras, a singer/songwriter who’s been a close friend of hers since 2007. You may remember his song “Hollywood’s Not America,” which was used as one of the “exit” songs on American Idol season season seven. He’s also written songs for Adam Lambert and Ricky Martin, among other performers.
Katy duets with Ferras on his brand-new EP, which is now available as a digital download, and she is also executive producer of the project. In addition, she’s bringing him with her as an opening act on her Prismatic World Tour.
“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,” Katy says in a statement. “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.”
“Her instincts are really on point,” Ferras says of working with Katy. “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 joins Katy when the U.S leg of her Prismatic world tour launches this Sunday in Raleigh, North Carolina.
