August 11, 2017 – 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 Warner Bros. Records. The comic book concept album is available now for pre-order, and includes as 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.
