    Katy Perry has her own record label to go along with her own perfume and more!

    The pop diva has announced the launch of Metamorphosis Music, her new joint venture record label with Capitol Records. Her first signing is multi-dimensional pop singer Ferras, whose self-titled EP is out now. Perry even appears on the EP and she LURVES her some Ferras. (Check out Ferras' video page to hear the tracks)

    Katy and Ferras met in 2007 when both were newly signed artists to Capitol Records. Through the years, their friendship developed, and when Katy was ready to launch Metamorphosis Music, she knew the Jordan-born, L.A.-based singer, songwriter, and musician should be her inaugural 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 says of Ferras.

    Wow, that is QUITE an endorsement for Ferras. If Perry wishes she wrote one of his songs, it's GOTTA be good. We're intrigued, as you should be.

    Katy not only duets with Ferras on one song on the EP (the Greg Wells-produced "Legends Never Die"), she also serves 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."

    Ferras' EP is a showcase for his lush, dark-hued pop aesthetic, sweeping soulful vocals, and unapologetically honest lyricism.

    Ferras EP Track Listing:

    "Speak in Tongues"
    "No Good in Goodnight"
    "Champagne"
    "King of Sabotage"
    "Legends Never Die" feat. Katy Perry
