"Overwhelmed" Kate Bush thanks Stranger Things fans

Kate Bush issues a thank you note to the fans and creators of Stranger Things following the renaissance of 'Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)'.

Kate Bush has penned a heartfelt letter thanking the fans and creators of Stranger Things following the renaissance of her song 'Running Up That Hill (A Deal with God)'.

The track - first released in the 1980s - has enjoyed phenomenal success around the world in recent weeks after being featured prominently in the fourth season of the Netflix drama, created by the Duffer Brothers.

In a blog post on her website titled 'On Top Of That Hill', she wrote: "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."

Bush is said to be earning £250,000 a week in the wake of the song's revival.
