Watch Lights bring her comic book to life in new music video for “Giants”

June 23 2017, 11:49 AM EDT By Maggie Dickman


Lights has debuted the video for "Giants," the lead single from her upcoming album Skin&Earth. What's even cooler? The video is bringing the album's companion comic book series to life, with Lights stepping into the dystopian world she's created as her protagonist En.

Give the video a watch below!

Lights worked on both the album and comic series concurrently, creating a totally immersive world for Skin&Earth, letting the music inspire the comic and vice versa.  

"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," Lights explains. "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."

And up to this point, Lights has kept fans on their toes, sending them on a journey through her comic world to find the lyrics to the song through a series of Instagram accounts. She's created an in-depth and, quite frankly, impressive map that leads fans into different parts of the Skin&Earth world via Instagram accounts, and with so much to explore, we're sure it'll keep fans busy until the official release!

Skin&Earth will be Lights' fourth studio album, following Little Machines.

The first print issue of the monthly comic book series—Skin&Earth #1—goes sale July 12 via Dynamite Entertainment. Skin&Earth is set for a fall release.
