Lights Reveals Skin & Earth, a New Comic Series and Concept Album
Electro-pop sensation Lights reveals the details of her next project, Skin & Earth – an album and comic book series written and illustrated entirely by Lights herself. The digital intro issue will be released in June, with the official print version on sale July 12 via Dynamite Entertainment. The monthly comic book series will kick off just before Comic-Con International, with new music released alongside each issue, leading into the release of Skin & Earth, Lights’ upcoming full-length studio album on Warner Bros. Records.
The comic series follows a young woman, En – a reflection of Lights herself – as she struggles to find hope in a hopeless world. Caught between romance and cults, gods and mortals, En is led down a dark path by new friends/lovers into a twisted fantasy world, forcing her to dig within and find the strength to overcome. Set in a post-apocalyptic future where corporations rule, Skin & Earth is an adventurous tale of loneliness and deceit, but ultimately becomes one of self-discovery and independence.
Skin & Earth will be the fourth studio album from the Canadian singer and songwriter, whose 2015 release Little Machines won Lights her second JUNO Award, for Best Pop Album of the Year.
