Three-time Grammy nominee Kate Bush issued a rare statement on Sunday thanking fans of Netflix's Stranger Things for the surprising resurgence of her 1985 hit Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God).

"You might've heard that the first part of the fantastic, gripping new series of Stranger Things has recently been released on Netflix. It features the song, Running Up That Hill which is being given a whole new lease of life by the young fans who love the show — I love it too!" the British 63-year-old wrote on her official website.

"Because of this, Running Up That Hill is charting around the world and has entered the UK chart at No. 8. It's all really exciting! Thanks very much to everyone who has supported the song. I wait with bated breath for the rest of the series in July. Best wishes, Kate."

In the fourth season of the Duffer Brothers' hit Netflix show, Running Up That Hill happens to be grieving teen Max Mayfield's (Sadie Sink) favorite song, and it unexpectedly saves her life in episode four.
