Lights will also embark on an acoustic North American tour this summer.
Lights has signed to Fueled by Ramen, Billboard can exclusively announce today (May 14).
Lights will kick off her new era with a 10-track unplugged album, Skin&Earth Acoustic, a collection of seven stripped-down takes on her most beloved songs and three newly-recorded tracks. Due out on July 12, the singer/songwriter/illustrator recorded, produced and mixed the album herself, and collaborated with husband Beau Bokan of Blessthefall on the visuals for the project.
Billboard caught up with Lights for a conversation about signing to Fueled By Ramen after her long tenure on Warner Bros. proper. "It’s pretty wild to be on a new label since the last one I was pretty much with since the beginning," she says of joining a roster that includes All Time Low, Panic! At the Disco, Paramore and Twenty One Pilots. "Glad I found my new proverbial mate, though. Time changes us so much, so it’s only fitting to be opening a welcomed new chapter surrounded by friend's bands and bands I have loved and watched for years. Before signing, I’d hit up my friends on the label to see how they liked it. It was literally like dating."
