Look Up Child is the second studio album by American contemporary Christian music singer-songwriter Lauren Daigle. It was released on September 7, 2018, through Centricity Music.[1]

Background[edit]

In an interview with Billboard's Jim Asker, Daigle said "I don't shy away from singing about my faith. I think it conveys honesty, and people see authenticity. More people are going to relate to my music if it's sincere. I believe that wholeheartedly. That's how you reach people that might not have felt that [the Christian genre] was their home before. I want this to be such a record of joy, such a record of hope, that people experience a childlikeness again. In the time of making this record, I had to remember who I was as a child. I want people to reflect on, 'The innocence of my childhood ... how do I see myself through those eyes again? How do I love myself like that again? Where's that joy? Where's that hope?"[2]

Singles[edit]

"You Say" was released as the lead single from the album on July 13, 2018.[3] It impacted Christian radio on July 9, 2018.[4] The song launched into the top five of the US iTunes Sales Chart upon its release, and debuted at number 53 on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Lauren's first entry on the chart.[5][6]

Promotional singles[edit]

"Still Rolling Stones" was released on August 10, 2018, as a promotional single.[7] The song debuted at No. 17 on the Hot Christian Songs chart.

"Look Up Child" was released as the second promotional single, debuting at No. 33 on the Hot Christian Songs chart. It peaked at No. 12.

Commercial performance[edit]

Look Up Child debuted at No. 3 on the US Billboard 200 with 115,000 album-equivalent units, of which 103,000 were pure album sales.[8] It is the highest-charting album by Daigle, and the highest-charting Christian album overall since Hard Love by Needtobreathe reached No. 2 on the chart in 2016. The album became the highest-charting Christian album by a woman on the Billboard 200 since LeAnn RimesYou Light Up My Life peaked at No. 1 in 1997.[8]
