The song that plays during the end credits of The Last of Us Season 1 episode 4 is True Faith by Lotte Kestner. It is a cover of the song True Faith by the band New Order.
Kestner, whose real name is Anna-Lynne Williams, released the song back in 2011 in her album titled Stolen.
Of course, this isn’t the first time The Last of Us TV show has used music for effect. In an earlier episode, a unique song was used to hide a secret message.
The song plays after two mysterious characters appear and ambush Joel and Ellie while they’re trying to hide from the Hunters.
These two characters are being hunted themselves by the brand-new character Kathleen and her bodyguard Perry.
Interestingly, Lotte Kestner’s version of True Faith was covered by Ashley Johnson, who plays Ellie in The Last of Us games, for a The Last of Us Part 2 commercial.
However, Kestner was initially not given credit in The Last of Us Part 2 version. This led to her calling out the creator of The Last of Us, Neil Druckmann.
Fortunately, Druckmann then apologized to her over Twitter, and she was then given the full credit she deserved.

What Does the Outro Song in The Last of Us Episode 4 Mean?
The song, during the end credits of episode 4, is a reference to the time it was used in The Last of Us Part 2.
However, its lyrics mention liberty, which sums up Joel and Ellie finally setting off on their journey. This can be seen in the lyrics, “I used to think that the day would never come.”
Additionally, the song’s lyrics also match perfectly with the secrets Ellie is holding back from Joel. This can be seen in the line, “I can’t tell you where we’re going.”
