Singer-songwriter Alessia Cara’s new original song “Feel You Now” has been released as Crunchyroll and Adult Swim revealed more about the animated series from Blade Runner: Black Lotus by Alcon Entertainment.
Also released was key art and the series’ opening title sequence. The series, which debuts later this year, follows a young woman named Elle who seeks to exact revenge on her foes and comes to understand her identity and uncover the mysteries of her past.
“Feel You Now” was co-written by Cara and producer Michael Hodges and it soundtracks the series’ opening title sequence. “Feel You Now” will be released this fall via ASG/10:22 PM/Def Jam Recordings.
“I am so thrilled to be part of this show in any way, but I’m especially thrilled to have been able to write this song for it,” Cara said. “To think that I made something that will be consistently attached to a show as legendary and innovative as this one feels super fulfilling. I wrote it with Michael Hodges remotely over the course of the pandemic, which is why the lyrics to ‘feel you now’ feel so striking to us.
“It’s not only about Elle searching for an existential understanding of what it means to be human, but also the trials we’ve all been put through in the last year and how much we relied on human connection and feeling to get us through,” Cara said. “Michael and I both felt like it struck the right nerve in us and we’re so glad the Blade Runner team was on the same wavelength.”
