Alt-Pop Phenom Shares Empowering Visuals for “Savage” as “Giants” Climbs at Hot AC
Second Issue of Comic Book Series Skin&Earth – Written & Illustrated by Lights – Out Now
11 August 2017 (Toronto, ON) – Alt-pop musician and newly-minted comics artist Lights has announced the release date of her upcoming album Skin&Earth for September 22, 2017 via Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The comic book concept album is available now for pre-order, and includes three instant grats – the anthemic lead single Giants, which is rapidly climbing the Hot AC radio chart, plus the sensual Skydiving, as well as today’s empowering new release “Savage”. “Savage”, which features Josh Dun of Twenty One Pilots on drums, corresponds directly with Issue 2 of the album’s companion comic book series, on sale now via Dynamite Entertainment. You can watch the video for “Savage” here.

In creating the immersive world of Skin&Earth, Lights actively worked on both the album and comic series concurrently – letting the music inspire the comic and vice versa. The press has already taken notice of this unique undertaking, with Billboard expressing, “Concept albums are nothing new, but it’s the lengths to which Lights takes her fourth album Skin&Earth that sets it apart,” while Idolator praises that “Lights is going all out for album four.” Playboy applauds this “Real-life musical wonder woman” for her fusion of “drawing, story-telling and musical talents in a way that’s never quite been done before,” and Forbes has dubbed Lights “A creative, enthusiastic force.”
Skin&Earth will be the fourth studio album from Lights, whose 2015 release Little Machines won the singer and songwriter her second JUNO Award, for Best Pop Album of the Year. Little Machines featured the Platinum-selling hit “Up We Go” and earned accolades from TIME, Idolator, Refinery29, Alternative Press, Noisey, NYLON, and more. Lights has sold out headline tours across North America and Europe and has played numerous festivals including Coachella, Reading & Leeds, plus she has toured with OneRepublic, Tegan & Sara, Paramore, Kaskade, and many others.
Lights will be on the road this fall in the U.S. as main support on tour with PVRIS. A full list of dates is below, with tickets and details available at music.iamlights.com/tour.
