Compared to his piano driven debut Aliens & Rainbows, Ferras has evolved into an edgier aesthetic for his self-titled EP (which was recently released by Katy Perry‘s new imprint Metamorphosis Music). The popster’s downbeat lead single, “Speak In Tongues,” carries a somber intro –perhaps inspired by the song’s raw lyrics. But with a sharp soulful falsetto, Ferras manages to slowly lift the neo-R&B track into a signature sonic soar:
“No more words, I want to speak in tongues.”
And here’s its graceful lyric video:
Ferras will perform tonight (9-19) and tomorrow (9-20) at the Staples Center along with Katy Perry and Tegan and Sara.
