Listen to Yann Tiersen’s ‘The Long Road’ (Portrait Version) from Mare of Easttown, Season 1, Ep. 7

French musician and composer Yann Tiersen’s ‘The Long Road‘ was that gorgeous piece of music played on the soundtrack of the series finale of Mare of Easttown last night — Mare of Easttown, Season 1, Episode 7, “Sacrament“.

The instrumental piece was played during the episode’s final scenes as Mare is crawling into the attic.

The track is from Tiersen’s 11th studio album Portrait, a 25-track album that was released via the Everything’s Calm label in 2019.

Yann Tiersen is probably the most known for providing the music for the hit French film Amélie.

The music was not specifically written for the film, however, but was chosen from the musician’s first three albums. Music that just happened to suit the atmosphere of the film beautifully.

Since then, Tiersen’s music has also been used for shows like Top Gear, CSI: NY, The Flash, and Berlin Station.

Listen to Yann Tiersen’s ‘The Long Road‘ as heard on Mare of Easttown in the track’s official music video.

The lovely almost calming video was filmed on a ferry as Tiersen heads to a beautiful, quite desolate island, and in various locations on the island itself.

As for Mare of Easttown, the critically acclaimed drama is sadly only a limited season and so will not be renewed for a second one.
