Be Human is the third studio album by British alternative rock band Fightstar, released on 20 April 2009 through independent label Search and Destroy Records, itself distributed by PIAS Recordings. The album was recorded between August and December 2008 in Chesterfield and London, with the band co-producing alongside Laruso guitarist Carl Bown. Additional recording took place Air Studios with string composer Audrey Riley. Unlike their first two studio releases, Daniel Conway did not contribute to the albums artwork, instead the band approached Ryohei Hase who digitally painted the cover art.
Four singles were released from Be Human, including "The English Way" and "Mercury Summer" prior to the albums release. Drawing praise from many critics, the album entered the UK Albums Chart at number 20, making it their highest charting album to date. The iTunes digital download includes a bonus track which is an acoustic version of "Unfamiliar Ceilings", the final track on the band's previous studio album, performed with former XFM presenter Katie P. A deluxe edition was later re-released on 1 March 2010, including four newly recorded tracks, a DVD of the band's live unplugged performance at
