Kim Petras released a Halloween-themed mixtape TURN OFF THE LIGHT VOL.1. The eight-track mixtape is inspired by her love of horror movies, with Petras trying to channel a Halloween movie soundtrack.

On the EP, “o m e n” leads way into “Close Your Eyes,” tied together with club instrumentals and very ‘80s inspired vocals. Petras even partnered with Elvira for the title track of the mixtape.

“Kim’s new mixtape is so good it’s scary,” the horror icon says. “I’m thrilled to be a part of it!”

While most of Petras’ musical releases are described as bubbly pop, TURN OFF THE LIGHT VOL. 1 leads into some darker themes. The mixtape comes after “All The Time,” a sugary-sweet song dramatically different from the latest release. Petras also recently appeared on Lil Aaron’s “ANYMORE” and in the track’s video from his latest ROCK$TAR FAMOU$ EP.

Currently, Petras is supporting Troye Sivan on The Bloom Tour, with tickets available now.
