On ‘Skin&Earth,’ Lights Channels Her Former Self


Lights’ highly-anticipated concept album, Skin&Earth, is out today–8 years, to the day, after the release of her debut LP, The Listening. On a Facebook Live chat just hours earlier, the Canadian singer-songwriter gushed about reading fans’ reactions and detailed an impressive string of collaborators, including Josh Dun (Twenty One Pilots), Dylan Bauld (Flor), and Corin Roddick (Purity Ring).

Perhaps Lights’ most notable collab, however, was herself.

On “Morphine” and “Almost Had Me,” Lights said, she revisited the writing and sonic styles exhibited on her first record. Combined with channeling other previous albums and hiding Captain Lights Easter eggs in the Skin&Earth comic accompaniment, she assures us: “This is a record for all the ages and all the eras.”

Tonight also marks the first date of Lights’ tour with PVRIS, kicking off in Los Angeles. Find tickets here.
