American alternative rock band Mazzy Star’s ‘Mary of Silence‘ was one of the tracks featured on the soundtrack of this week’s episode of the Apple TV+ sci-fi drama For All Mankind — For All Mankind, Season 3, Episode 6, “New Eden“.
The dream pop song was originally released on the indie band’s second studio album So Tonight That I Might See.
That album came out on the Capitol label in late 1993.
An album that has since been called one of the best dream pop albums ever released.
The song was not a single from the album, however, as that was reserved for the hit song ‘Fade Into You‘.
But the song did receive quite a bit of attention on college and alternative radio stations and in clubs.
That is likely because ‘Mary of Silence‘ has that ominous, dark and almost gothic sound many college students tend to gravitate towards, as they move towards adulthood and away from their parents.
