Here’s Lauren Daigle’s Song For the ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Soundtrack


Fans of worship music may have noticed a familiar voice on the Blade Runner 2049 soundtrack: Worship artist Lauren Daigle contributed the song “Almost Human” to the sci-fi epic.

This week she told reporters at the GMA Dove Awards how the song came about. After being invited to contribute, she went away and prayed. She explained, “I couldn’t get away from the idea of every person that’s in those theaters that are watching Blade Runner that might not know who God is, that might need His hope, that might need His love, the things that we as Christians offer the world and bring to the world.”

She said that even part of the film’s plot played into the spiritual metaphors of the song:

The symbolism is that there are characters in the movies who are ‘replicants,’ and then there are humans. The replicants are kind of like the artificial intelligence, and they long to be human. I thought ‘I can kind of put that in my own way of we as humans, we hear the ‘God-shaped hole,’ that reference. We all have just this place of longing, that we want to know who God is. We long for God in ways that sometimes we don’t even see. This song is about that place of recognizing our longing and recognizing who we are apart from Him and then who we are when we come in to what He has in store for us.

Lauren shared a bit more about the heart of #AlmostHuman and how the song came to be while she was at the GMA Dove Awards this week. Watch it here…-Team LD
