LIGHTS recently spoke to Alternative Press about her “lasts.” When asked about the last book she read, she revealed the story behind the track “Prodigal Daughter.”
“It was a book about sexual confidence called Come As You Are,”she says. “It’s a very empowering book. The song ‘Prodigal Daughter,’ the first one that came out from [new album] PEP, is really about rediscovering sexuality after leaving the oppression of societal and religious expectation. I’m not religious, but I was raised a religious kid, and you have to shed all that and rediscover your ownership of self. A lot of the reading material that I’ve read over the pandemic has been really good. That’s one of them.”
