I need to get and use the field label in my lightning component.

How can this be done in lightning component markup or controller?
You need to call server side controller from lightning and use following code (Describe API) there:
Schema.SObjectField F = fieldNameMap.get(fieldAPIName); //where fieldAPIName is API name of field Schema.DescribeFieldResult R = F.getDescribe(); String fieldLabel=R.getLabel(); return fieldLabel;
This is the only way as far as I know. Else, you can create new custom labels for field names labels and use them directly in lightning using “$Label.c.Custom_Label”
