Kate Bush is a Pop Star (Again)

By adding Kate Bush’s 1985 single “Running Up That Hill” to the fourth season of Netflix’s Stranger Things, the show’s producers have introduced the British avant-pop legend to a new generation of admirers.

“How utterly brilliant,” writes Bush on her website. “It’s hard to take in the speed at which this has all been happening since the release of the first part of the Stranger Things new series. So many young people who love the show, discovering the song for the first time.”

Hounds of Love, the album featuring the single, hit No. 1 on the Billboard Top Alternative Albums chart in the U.S. The track has reached No. 8 on its Hot 100 singles chart. It’s also hit No. 2 on the Official UK Singles Chart.

“Thanks so much to everyone who has supported the song and a really special thank you to the Duffer Brothers for creating something with such heart,” says Bush.

Here’s a ranking of Bush’s LP catalogue.
