Lauren Daigle Says Her New “Look Up Child” Album Shows You Can Always Come Back to Redemption

Lauren Daigle releases her Look Up Child album tomorrow, September 7, 2018, and with it new messages to inspire and encourage faith. This is Daigle’s first album in three years since her How Can It Be album.

Topping the album is Daigle’s “You Say” single which is currently #1 on Billboard’s Hot Christian Songs chart (dated September 6) and has been #1 on the chart for seven weeks. “You Say” is the first offering from Daigle’s second proper full-length, Look Up Child.

The “You Say” chorus says it all: 
You say I am loved when I can’t feel a thing
You say I am strong when I think I am weak
You say I am held when I am falling short
When I don’t belong, oh You say that I am Yours
And I believe, oh I believe
What You say of me
I believe

Lauren Daigle: A Rising Star

According to Jesus Culture Music, Daigle has been nominated twice for a GRAMMY®, gathered three Billboard Music Awards, received an American Music Awards nomination, earned gold certifications for three singles and three K-LOVE Fan Awards.

Now she’s creating new music that comes from a deep place. Talking to a friend one day, Daigle said, “I feel like I’m losing myself to all of this. I sit in meetings all day and then I leave the meeting and I go onstage. And then it’s just this chaotic hustle. And I don’t know how to get a grip of just the things I used to love.”

Her friend said: “Oh, you need to get in touch with your 8-year-old child again.”

“What are you talking about?” she asked.

“The 8-year-old self that loved life, that had no constraints but didn’t know capacity. How would the 8-year-old self exist in the world that you live in now?”

Lauren’s take-away from that conversation? “I’m just supposed to be an 8-year-old child…like look up, child, that’s what all that this is about.”

With the “Look Up Child” lyrics, Daigle displays her childlike trust in God:

You’re not threatened by the war
You’re not shaken by the storm
I know You’re in control
Even in our suffering
Even when it can’t be seen
I know You’re in control

And she hears God say:

Look up child, ayy
Look up child, ayy
Look up child, oh-oh-oooh
