Katy Perry launches own record label

Singer's first signing is pop artist Ferras

Katy Perry has launched her own label.

The US pop star announced the launch of Metamorphosis Music yesterday (June 17). The label is a joint venture with Capitol Records, which released Perry’s three albums to date. Perry’s first signing to her own imprint is pop singer Ferras, who Perry described as “incredibly talented & soulful” in a tweet announcing the news.

Ferras’ debut EP features Perry on a track called ‘Legends Never Die’. The five-track record was executive produced by Perry. In a press release for the EP, Perry says of Ferras: “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. I believe he is going to be an important artist to watch unfold.”

Ferras will also join Perry on the North American leg of her ongoing Prismatic World Tour, which begins in Raleigh, North Carolina on June 22.
