Kate Bush Is Set to Bank £1 Million According to Reports After Her Top-Of-The-Charts Smash Running up That Hill in 1985!


After her 1985 hit Running Up That Hill soared to the top of the charts last week, Kate Bush is expected to earn more than £1 million. After being used in the current season of Netflix’s sci-fi horror show Stranger Things, the song has witnessed a rebirth, with the song reaching No. 3 in the charts when it was first released.

‘Kate is on track to make a seven-figure sum as a result of its revival,’ a source told The Sun. She owns all of the publishing and licensing rights, and she also wrote it, so she will receive practically all of the proceeds.

‘Given the song’s success, Kate will easily be earning £250,000 a week, and if things continue as they are, she’ll be smiling all the way to the bank.’ On Spotify, the song has about a million daily listens, earning Kate, 63, around £250,000 every week, with the tune set to stay at the top of the chart for the second week in a row.

Kate’s representative has been approached for comment by MailOnline. Kate now holds the record for being the oldest female artist to have a UK No. 1 song, surpassing Cher, who achieved the feat with Believe in 1998.

Kate Expressed Gratitude to The Creators of Stranger Things

It comes after Kate expressed gratitude to the creators of Stranger Things for helping to drive Running Up That Hill to the top of the UK charts. Kate has congratulated the Duffer brothers, who developed and act as executive producers of the hit Netflix program, for her chart-topping triumph.

‘The characters in this latest series face many of the same difficulties that exist in real life right now.’ I feel the Duffer Brothers have touched people’s emotions in a unique way, at a time when everyone, especially young people, is going through a difficult moment.

‘By portraying Running Up That Hill in such a positive way – as a talisman for Max (one of the key female characters), the song has been elevated into the emotional realm of her story.’ She and her friends are surrounded by fear, strife, and the power of love.

‘I applaud the Duffer Brothers for their bravery in bringing this new series into far more mature and darker territory. I’d like to express my gratitude to them for bringing the music into the lives of so many people.’ Kate has broken the record for the longest time between recording a single and it reaching the top of the UK chart, smashing Wham’s Last Christmas by 36 years.

‘I’m astonished by the scale of compassion and support the song is receiving, and it’s all happening really fast as if it’s being driven along by some kind of elemental force,’ she wrote on her website. ‘I have to admit, it’s all made me really emotional.’ ‘Thank you very much for making the song a No. 1 in such an unexpected way,’ says the artist.
