Record imprints aren’t just for rappers anymore. Katy Perry announced on Tuesday (June 17) that she’s starting her own label called Metamorphosis Music. And, guess what? She already has her first signee!
“I am so ECSTATIC to finally announce my NEW label Metamorphosis Music & my first signing, the incredibly talented & soulful FERRAS!,” Katy tweeted after teasing the announcement the day before.

Ferras released his new song, “Legends Never Die,” featuring Katy Perry, earlier on Tuesday. His self-titled EP, out now, is being distributed by Capitol Records and was exectuvie-produced by Perry.
“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 said in a statement. “‘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.”
