EDITORS’ NOTES

“This is the age where I’m learning what I believe in,” mused Lauren Daigle, days shy of her 27th birthday, to Beats 1 host Zane Lowe. Her second album, Look Up Child, attempts to re-evaluate faith through the eyes of a kid—abandoning doubt and fear and other temptations of adulthood. She offers support to other believers, with songs about reassurance (“Rescue”), comfort (“Your Wings”) and contentment (“Everything”). The LP’s spiritual centrepiece is “Losing My Religion”, a track, as Daigle put it, about “embracing the freedom of taking off the check boxes, the rules, and all those things that muddy up what faith actually is.”

Less Is More

This is the music you will want to listen to on your dark drive home from the shopping mall after buying gifts for your loved ones. The warm jazz accompanying Daigle's vocals will help you overcome the cold seats and frigid steering wheel in your car as you relax after fighting the crowds and general holiday chaos. The arrangements will soothe your thoughts as you decompress after a job well done. This album is a treat for those willing to listen to each instrument support the wonderful vocalist.

It’s just 3 new Songs

If you already own Behold, the Deluxe Edition is just a few more songs from the original release. If you don’t already own Behold, then yes, this is a solid release and well worth the purchase.

This is to the people bout re-releases (2 things)

1. Re-releases are common in the music industry, as they create more money, and give a fresh perspective and look to the album.

2. Lauren Daigle is not trying to do this to get rich, but to reach people for the gospel. Maybe this album will reach people that it didn’t before, maybe they will become saved. (That’s also the reason she went on the Ellen Show, to reach an audience that probably never heard of Jesus and needed the gospel.)

3. This is also a deluxe version and... hey! Everyone likes deluxe stuff! 😉

About Lauren Daigle

Growing up in Lafayette, Louisiana surrounded by gospel, zydeco, blues, and Cajun music, Christian praise & worship singer and songwriter Lauren Daigle was always singing around the house as a child, but it wasn't until a serious illness kept her out of school for nearly two years beginning when she was 15 years old that she turned completely to music as both solace and a profession. Home-schooled during that time, music became Daigle's hedge against social isolation, and she began singing at her local church as a praise & worship leader. Blessed with a striking and smoky alto singing voice, she was encouraged to try out for the American Idol television series, which she did in both 2010 and 2012. The stressful and demanding process of trying out for the show taught her a lot of valuable lessons, and she returned home determined to sharpen her writing and singing skills. She began pursuing a child and family studies degree at Louisiana State University, and while there, was asked by a local band to help with vocals on an EP recording project. A demo of the EP somehow made it to the Centricity Music label and, impressed with her vocals, the label signed Daigle as a solo artist in 2013. Her five-song debut EP, How Can It Be, produced by Paul Mabury, was released in late 2014 and was an immediate success on the Christian charts. In the spring of 2015, How Can It Be was expanded into a full-length LP and became both a critical and commercial success, crossing over to reach number 30 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and eventually going gold. Daigle followed up in October 2016 with an album of soft jazz-inspired Christmas standards called Behold. The following year saw her contribute the single "Almost Human" to the soundtrack for Blade Runner 2049. ~ Steve Leggett
