Lights has announced a new project called Skin & Earth which will be a new album and a comic book series written and illustrated in full by Lights. Check out the teaser below and what she had to say about the project.
“I feel my whole life has lead up to a project like this. It’s a complete convergence of everything I love – music, comics, post-apocalyptic romance, crystals, wine and powerful ladies, all perfectly entwined. It’ll be by far my most care-free and fierce album yet. I think now, more than ever, people need a reason to listen to a whole record, and this is mine.”
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.
The digital intro issue of Skin & Earth will be released in May 2017, with the first print issue on sale July 12th via Dynamite Entertainment. The monthly comic book series will kick off just before Comic-Con International. New music will accompany each issue leading into the Fall 2017 release of Skin & Earth, Lights’ next full-length studio album on Warner Bros. Records.
