Singer Kate Bush has yet to assimilate the global success of her song ‘Running Up That Hill’ almost 37 years after its premiere. In fact, the singer has acknowledged that she had not heard the song for many years, as well as much of her record catalog of the 80s, until the creators of ‘Stranger Things’ contacted her to use it in the new season of the series.
“I don’t usually listen to my old songs, but when these opportunities arise, I do everything I can to get involved in it. Maybe to edit it or revisit it in some way. That’s where I get to work. But yes, I hadn’t heard it for many years,” he revealed on bbc Radio 4, where he offered some details about his work in the studio in order to revitalize and modernize the song.
The music star, known for the zeal with which he protects his private life and for his traditional refusal to perform live or give interviews, has undoubtedly pleasantly surprised his fans with his new appearance on the airwaves, in which he has expressed his amazement at the great reception that ‘Running Up That Hill’ has had among the new generations.
“Well, it’s been something extraordinary. The truth is that we are talking about a great series, and I imagined that the song would receive some attention. But I would never have imagined anything like this. It’s very exciting, and also shocking, right? I think the world has gone crazy,” joked the always innovative singer-songwriter.
