Lights Is ‘Savage’ on Gritty New Track Off ‘Skin & Earth': Listen

The apocalypse may be nigh, but Lights, with all her fiery fighting spirit (and fire engine-red hair), is prepared for the revolution with her forthcoming fourth studio album, Skin & Earth—and the latest track off the record proves she’s ready to rumble.

“Savage” finds the Canadian pop star delivering one hell of a scathing kiss-off to a dude who did her dirty. A gut punch of rollicking, grimy electro-rock anchored by a stomping, rafters-rattling electric guitar riff, the singer growls about a lover who’s turned to, well, ice: “What do you do when a man don’t love you? / He takes the sun from the sky above you / How do you fix the damage? / How do you break the habit? / I never knew you could be so savage.”

Even in the quieter, more emotive and bluesy moments she’s unrelenting in her righteous woman-scored fury: “In a flash flood of cruelty you washed the ground out from under me,” she modulates, heartbroken, over the raucous beats and smoky backroom synths.

Speaking exclusively to PopCrush back in April, the singer described her new album, which is accompanied by a comic series of the same name, as “the craziest and…most work I’ve ever put into something.”

Skin & Earth is due out September 22.
