Lights Brings “Giants” To Life with “Skin & Earth” Comic

Lights, camera, action! Lights is back, and she can now add “Comic Book Creator” to her lengthy and impressive resume.

Our favourite Canadian  lady has released a new song called “Giants”, and it’s the first song to be released from her upcoming album Skin and Earth. Pretty cool, right? Wait for it, because not only is there a new album coming from Lights, but she also wrote a COMIC to go along with the album.

The comic tells the story of a girl who lives in a post apocalyptic future. Lights said in a tweet that “Giants takes place in issue 5. The video hints at things to come without giving away what is really a pivotal point in the story”. The first issue of the comic was released on July 14th.

“Giants” starts out with a pounding piano beat in the background and Lights singing. The chorus is where the song picks up and it changes into this very uplifting, powerful sounding song. Later on in the song around the 2 minute 30 second mark, there’s a very cool part that is going to get everyone pumped when its played live (listen to it yourself and you’ll just know) Overall, the track is very catchy so it’s going to be stuck in your head for days, so get ready.

Lights has consistently released awesome songs and I can’t wait to hear the rest of this album. This is a song you don’t want to miss and your ears won’t want to miss it either. Skin and Earth comes out in fall 2017.

Okay…we didn’t think Lights can get any cooler, but here we are! What are your thoughts on her new song?
