Katharine McPhee Signs With Verve

Former "American Idol" star Katharine McPhee has signed a new deal with Verve, Billboard.com can reveal. The artist is recording her label debut, due before the end of the year.

McPhee released a lone self-titled album for RCA in late 2006, which has sold 375,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Since then she's dabbled in acting, including a role in the 2008 comedy "The House Bunny."

"The album she is working on will show many new sides to her talents as an interpreter and a songwriter, and show everyone just how special she is," Verve Music Group president/CEO Bruce Resnikoff says.
