"To Be Human"

"To Be Human" is a song recorded by Australian singer Sia featuring English singer Labrinth for the soundtrack to the 2017 superhero film Wonder Woman. It was released as a single on 25 May 2017 by WaterTower Music.[2]


"To Be Human" is a pop ballad;[3] some critics believed it reflects the film's core relationship between Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Chris Pine's Steve Trevor. Lyrically, the song expresses a love that can conquer all odds. It is the only non-instrumental song on the soundtrack album.[4]

Critical reception

In Rolling Stone, Brittany Spanos thought with the "cinematic" single, Sia "creates a sweeping, epic musical moment".[5] Lauren Tom for Billboard wrote that "Sia's powerful song reflects the film’s underlying message", noting the singer "channels her inner Wonder Woman".[6] Megan Davies in Digital Spy opined the song is a "powerful new anthem".[7] Randall Colburn of Consequence of Sound wrote: "The swelling, anthemic track, is a rousing one, bound to underscore a tender moment between Gal Gadot and co-star Chris Pine".[8]
