Kate Bush’s resurgent “Running Up That Hill” has topped the UK singles chart. It’s Bush’s second UK chart-topper, following 1978’s “Wuthering Heights.” According to the Official Charts Company, Bush now holds the record for the longest-ever gap between No. 1 singles.

“Running Up That Hill,” a Hounds of Love single, had previously reached No. 3 upon its original release in 1985. The song has regained popularity due to its inclusion in the fourth season of Stranger Things. Bush has released multiple statements about the song’s newfound popularity, and, today, has shared another. “I’m overwhelmed by the scale of affection and support the song is receiving and it’s all happening really fast, as if it’s being driven along by a kind of elemental force,” she wrote. “I have to admit I feel really moved by it all.” Find the full statement below.

Kate Bush:

The Duffer Brothers have created four extraordinary series of Stranger Things in which the child actors have grown into young adults. In this latest series the characters are facing many of the same challenges that exist in reality right now. I believe the Duffer Brothers have touched people’s hearts in a special way, at a time that’s incredibly difficult for everyone, especially younger people.

By featuring Running Up That Hill in such a positive light – as a talisman for Max (one of the main female characters) – the song has been brought into the emotional arena of her story. Fear, conflict and the power of love are all around her and her friends.

I salute the Duffer Brothers for their courage – taking this new series into a much more adult and darker place. I want to thank them so much for bringing the song into so many people’s lives.

I’m overwhelmed by the scale of affection and support the song is receiving and it’s all happening really fast, as if it’s being driven along by a kind of elemental force.

I have to admit I feel really moved by it all.

Thank you so very much for making the song a No 1 in such an unexpected way.

Kate
