She went on to call Ferras "a man with a message" and "an important artist" in a press release.
"Her instincts are really on point," Ferras said about 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 released his five-song, self-titled EP on iTunes today, including the lead single "Legends Never Die" with Katy Perry.
