Kim Petras Enlists Elvira For Halloween-Themed ‘Turn Off The Light’ Mixtape

She may be currently supporting Troye Sivan on his North American tour, but that’s not stopped Kim Petras from surprising us all with an early Halloween treat in the form of her just-released ‘Turn Off The Light Vol 1’ mixtape.

The eight-track set has been created for ghouls and witches alike, blending sugared pop melodies together with sinister synths and blood-thirsty beats. The title track even features Elvira, the Mistress of the Dark herself.

Speaking about collaborating with Petras, Elvira said: “Kim’s new mixtape is so good it’s SCARY! I’m thrilled to be a part of it!”
