English alternative legend Kate Bush is enjoying massive popularity thanks to the fourth season of Stranger Things. The Netflix series prominently uses one of its hits, “Running Up That Hill,” and fans have been searching so hard for the tune that it’s propelled it to secure the charts.
Bush himself issued a statement thanking viewers and expressing their excitement at the conclusion of the sci-fi series. “You may have heard that the first part of the fantastic, compelling new series Stranger Things recently released on Netflix,” she says. “It features the song ‘Running Up That Hill’ which is brought to life by the young fans who love the show – I love it too!”
She announces the single has entered the UK Singles Chart at number eight before saying she’s just waiting for closure like the rest of us. “‘Running Up That Hill’ has charted worldwide and entered the UK chart at number 8. It’s all really exciting!” she adds. “Thank you to everyone who supported the song. I’m waiting with bated breath for the rest of the series in July.”
The response to Stranger Things Season 4 has been overwhelmingly positive. Our very own Jakob Barnes writes in his Stranger Things Season 4 review that the series will be “bigger, bolder and more brutal than ever”.
Created by Matt and Ross Duffer, Stranger Things follows a group of children in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana as they begin encountering dimension leap monsters. Over the course of the four seasons it has been revealed that this all stems from an ongoing conspiracy and we are now heading towards the climax.
What happens in Stranger Things season 4 part 2? Who knows, but the music should be more to the point because the bar has been set high.
