Kate Bush will make £1m on her 37-year-old hit because it appeared in 'Stranger Things'
Kate Bush has suddenly struck it rich - her 1985 song Running Up That Hill appeared on TV series Stranger Things and is making her £250,000 a week. The track has reached the top of the charts on Spotify and gets 1 million listens every day.
Insiders reported that the song is now bringing in a quarter of a million a week, and the track isn't going out of rotation. By the looks of it, she could easily raise a million on it.
"She owns all of the publishing and licensing rights, and she wrote it - so nearly all the cash is going to her. Given the traction of the song, Kate will easily be pulling in £250,000 a week and, if it keeps on the way it is, she'll be laughing all the way to the bank," sources told The Sun.
