She continued: “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! 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.”
The song is played several times in the new season as it is the favorite song of the character Max Mayfield.
The fourth season of Stranger Things is being released in two volumes, with only the first seven episodes having been added to Netflix. Episodes eight and nine will be released in July as volume two. Bush also told fans that she’s looking forward to the second portion of episodes.
