Alt-pop icon Lights has shared new track and video In My Head (ft. Josh Dun), alongside the official video which can be seen here. Lights’ highly-anticipated new album PƎP arrives 1st April via Fueled By Ramen and is available for pre-order now.
Lights expanded on the single, “In My Head in a few words is about tuning out the chaos and the thousand voices telling us how to feel and act and look, and just doing things your way. The “In My Head” video is visually and conceptually the culmination of the previous three songs that I released leading up. The color scheme of PƎP is primary, so the first PƎP video (‘Prodigal Daughter’) was thematically red, ‘Real Thing (featuring Elohim)’ was blue, and ‘Salt and Vinegar’ was yellow. ‘In My Head’ was always meant to be all three, and it sums up the series conceptually as well.”
In celebration of the record, Lights’ Baby I’m Back North American headline tour will kick off on 3rd April in Portland, making stops at The Fonda in Los Angeles and New York City’s Irving Plaza before wrapping up in Toronto, Ontario on 7th May. Tickets for all dates are available now. For more information, please visit www.iamlights.com.
Last month, the artist shared the hypnotic Salt and Vinegar, which Lights explained, “I’ve never understood the task more than I did when I was making this record. My vision feels complete, and every single component comes from this very intense evolution I’ve experienced in my personal life over the last few years.” She adds, “We’re all products, we all market ourselves every single day. The idea behind PEP is if you’re going to brand yourself, then brand yourself to happiness.”
In December, Lights shared the dreamy and ethereal Real Thing feat. Elohim, which came shortly after single Prodigal Daughter, the unapologetic anthem about self-exploration and ignoring societal norms.
Lights also shared The Clinic, a new side story based off Lights’ Skin&Earth comic series. Written and illustrated exclusively by Lights herself, the entire story is available to read now at www.visittheclinic.com.
