Kate Bush has reportedly made £1.9million from the Running Up That Hill resurgence thanks to Stranger Things

Kate Bush has reportedly made a huge buck since a revival of her song “Running Up That Hill” was sparked by the Netflix series stranger things.

The song featured prominently in the hit show’s anticipated fourth and final season, and resulted in the song breaking numerous records by topping the UK charts almost 37 years after its release.

Luminate, an entertainment data and insights company, estimates that Bush’s streaming royalties total $2.3million (£1.9million) as she owns all copyright in her music.

“While we’ve seen a notable surge in catalog music streams over the last few years – with annual growth of 20% in 2021 alone – the Kate Bush story has taken the phenomenon to a new level,” said Rob Jonas, the CEO of Luminate in a statement to CBS MoneyWatch.

He added that “Running Up That Hill” has become the most-streamed song both in the US and worldwide.

The Independent has reached out to Spotify and Bush officials to confirm the number.

In a post titled “Still up on that Hill,” shared on her website on Sunday (July 3), Bush celebrated her song hitting #1 for the third straight “surreal” week.

“I was so delighted that the Duffer Brothers wanted to use ‘RUTH’ for Max’s totem, but now that I’ve seen the entirety of the final series, I’m deeply honored that the song was chosen to be a part of their roller coaster ride .”
