Lights will be releasing her first LP since last year’s Midnight Machines, which featured acoustic versions of songs from 2014’s Little Machines on top of two new tracks. Her new LP, entitled Skin & Earth, will not only be a brand new album but also a comic book series.
Any Lights fan worth their salt knows that Lights (Valerie Anne Poxleitner) is a huge comic book fan, with many of her music videos encompassing animated comic book style characters. According to Lights, she feels her “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,” Lights said in a statement. “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.”
According to a press release, the new comic series will take place in a post-apocalyptic world and will tell the story of main protagonist En.
Skin & Earth‘s album will be released in the fall via Warner Bros., while the accompanying comic book series will release its first issue on July 12 via Dynamite Entertainment. Watch a teaser video for Skin & Earth below.
