Lights on Monday 27th May 2019

Always pushing boundaries, alt-pop phenomenon Lights has never shied away from a challenge. Through her first three records, Lights built an incredibly passionate fanbase, selling out tours around the world, earning 100M in U.S. streams, 200K in U.S. album sales, and two JUNO Awards, not to mention the 2M + rabid fans who follow her every move online. Yet through this success, she felt like she had more important things to say through her music but just didn’t know how to get them out. Thus was born Skin&Earth, the Canadian singer’s fourth record and companion comic book series of the same name. As Billboard explains, “Concept albums are nothing new, but it’s the lengths to which Lights takes her fourth album Skin&Earth that sets it apart,” with Lights having written and illustrated the comic series in full herself while concurrently working on an album to tell the same story. Further critical acclaim for the project comes from Playboy, who dubs her a “Real-life musical wonder woman,” while ELLE describes Lights as “a musician, and artist, and a comic book hero,” Departures praises her as “More pop siren than indie darling,” and Forbes states Lights is “A creative, enthusiastic force.” Anthemic single “Giants” brings the immersive comic book world to life, as Lights – and her leading lady – struggle to find hope in a hopeless world. As Buzzfeed attests, “It’s time for Americans to fall in love with Lights.”
