2011 release from the French singer / songwriter. Skyline is Yann Tiersen s seventh studio album. and sees Tiersen taking a confident step forward. cementing the sound of its darker sister. the critically acclaimed Dust Lane. which was released almost exactly 12 months previously. Says Tiersen. -Strangely while Skyline musically comes across as lighter and happier than Dust Lane the subject matter is somewhat darker - there is certainly a sense of moving on and what thoughts are left having dealt with loss-.
