Kanye West is establishing a label, Getting Out Our Dreams, in association with Sony Music Label Group U.S. The artist/producer, who remains signed to Roc-a-Fella/Def Jam, has also entered into a production pact with Sony.

The first release under the long-term label/production deal is John Legend's major-label debut album, "Get Lifted," due in December. Singer/keyboardist Legend appears on West's 2004 solo debut, "The College Dropout."

Producing such hits as "Through the Wire" and "Jesus Walks," "The College Dropout" has sold 2.3 million units in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. A sought-after producer, West has collaborated on projects with Twista, Alicia Keys, Jay-Z, Ludacris and Janet Jackson, among others.
