Launched in 1985 after gaining prominence in the science fiction drama series “Stranger Things” from streaming service Netflix, it topped the charts last Friday.
“It’s extraordinary. (…) This is a great series. I thought the song would attract a little attention, but I never thought it would be like this,” Kate Bush told BBC Radio 4.
“It’s very exciting, but really shocking, isn’t it? I mean, the whole world is crazy,” he noted.
The song “Running Up That Hill” first peaked on the Number Train in 1985, but rose again 37 years later when the new generation discovered it through Netflix production.
Kate Bush returned to the top of the UK charts after 44 years with her debut single “Watering Heights”.
In a rare interview, the 63-year-old artist stressed that his music “reached a whole new audience” “wonderful”, many of whom had never heard of him.
“It’s so special that all these young people are listening to music for the first time and discovering it,” he added.
“Running Up That Hill” recently topped the charts in countries like Australia, Belgium and Sweden, and fourth in the United States, first appearing in the top five of Billboard magazine.
