Here Are 6 Huge Songs You Didn’t Know Lights Covered
If you haven’t heard of Lights then you’ve probably been living under a rock for the better part of a decade.
The Canadian singer-songwriter brought us gems like “February Air” and “Up We Go” and is back this year to present at the iHeartRadio MMVAs on June 18.
It’s been a minute since she blessed us with new music, but the wait is almost up. Her highly anticipated fourth studio album, Skin & Earth, alongside an exclusive comic series that Lights wrote and illustrated herself, is expected to drop this fall. The project has a badass, post-apocalyptic vibe with Lights as the heroine. To celebrate the complete convergence of her passions, she’s releasing songs with each issue. If fall still seems light-years away, don’t worry. We’ve unearthed some of her amazing covers to tide you over.
