Nelly Furtado has signed her former support act to her new record label, and will release their upcoming hits album via Nelstar.
Toronto, Canada band Fritz Helder & The Phantoms are the singer/songwriter's first signed act.
She says, "Ive been thinking about a way to help Fritz Helder for a while and this venture grew out of my love for the band, their art and their work ethic. I am as committed as they are to bringing their creativity to the world."
Helder and his band previously toured with Furtado, and they have also supported Lady Gaga live.
