Kate Bush acknowledged the Stranger Things-fueled resurgence of her 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill” in a rare statement posted on the singer’s website Sunday.
Without spoiling the fourth season of the Netflix series, the first single from Bush’s Hounds of Love album plays a key role in a pivotal scene involving one of the show’s characters. As a result, the track has gone viral, with streams of “Running Up That Hill” have multiplied by the thousands over the past week, and the nearly 40-year-old track suddenly finds itself back on the charts.
“You might’ve heard that the first part of the fantastic, gripping new series of Stranger Things has recently been released on Netflix,” Bush wrote in a statement on her official website. “It features the song, ‘Running Up That Hill’ which is being given a whole new lease of life by the young fans who love the show – I love it too!”
