California-based folk singer Daniel Blake’s ‘Here With Me‘ was featured on the new episode of The CW’s sci-fi drama Roswell, New Mexico on Tuesday night, April 23rd, 2019 — Season 1, Episode 13, “Recovering the Satellites”.
The hauntingly beautiful cover of Dido’s ‘Here With Me‘ was played in the gorgeous montage as Michael plays guitar, Liza tells Rosa’s grave about loving Max, Max resurrects Rosa from Noah’s pod, Isobel blows up Noah’s photograph, Liz and Rosa unite, and then Liz goes looking for Max and finds him lying on in the cave dead.
The song continues playing as she cradles his lifeless body.
Daniel Blake’s ‘Here With Me‘ was released earlier this year. A song it took Blake a long time to record, as he struggled establishing a career as a singer songwriter at night, while working construction during the day.
For the last two years, however, Blake has committed himself to becoming a successful singer songwriter, and is now a regular performer in the Los Angeles folk music scene.
It looks like that commitment has paid off too as Daniel Blake’s ‘Here With Me‘ was a gorgeous addition to Tuesday night’s season finale of Roswell, New Mexico. If he continues to record songs this gorgeous, it is likely to be only the first of many songs the singer has featured on popular TV shows.
As for Dido’s ‘Here With Me‘, it was the British singer’s debut single. One that also catapulted her to international fame upon its release in 1999. The song is from her debut album No Angel.
Interestingly too, Dido’s ‘Here With Me‘ was the theme song from the sci-fi drama Roswell, which aired from 1999 to 2002. It is that which likely caused the music supervisor of Roswell, New Mexico to include an updated version of the song in an updated version of the TV series.
