Lights announced the title and details of her forthcoming fourth studio album, Skin & Earth, on Tuesday.

The Canadian pop artist shared a video teaser for her new record on Twitter on April 18, where she has been teasing her new era with a week-long countdown featuring a series of cryptic photos, along with glimpses of her new fire engine red hair.

According to the singer-songwriter’s web site, the album—which will also be released alongside an exclusive comic book series written and illustrated by Lights herself—will be unveiled over the course of the year, with the final release of the full-length record due out Fall 2017.

A digital introduction issue for the comic, which is set in a post-apocalyptic, corporatist future and will follow the journey of a young woman struggling to “find hope in a hopeless world,” will be released in May, with the initial print Issue #1 on sale July 12, just before Comic-Con launches this summer. New music will accompany each monthly issue leading up to the release of the album.

In a press release, Lights calls her upcoming record “a complete convergence of everything I love—music, comics, post-apocalyptic romance, crystals, wine and powerful ladies, all perfectly entwined,” adding that it will be “by far my most care-free and fierce album yet.”
