"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]

Composition[edit]

"To Be Human" is a 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 express a love that can conquer all odds. It is the only non-instrumental song on the soundtrack album.[4]

Critical reception[edit]

In Rolling Stone, Brittany Spanos thought with the "cinematic" single, Sia "creates a sweeping, epic musical moment."[5] Lauren Tom for Billboard wrote, "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]
