Lights

Always pushing boundaries, alt-pop phenomenon Lights has never shied away from a challenge. Through her first three records, Lights built an incredibly passionate fan base, selling out tours around the world, earning 120M in U.S. streams, over 250K in U.S. album sales, three JUNO Awards including a 2018 win for Pop Album of the Year, and three Gold album certifications; 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, entirely written and illustrated by Lights herself. 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.” Her recent anthemic singles “Giants” and “We Were Here” bring the immersive comic book world to life, as Lights – and her alter-ego leading lady – struggle to find hope in a hopeless world. 

The graphic novel version of Skin&Earth will release this July, as Lights continues to tour in support of the project throughout the summer.
