Kim Petras Releases Cover Of Kate Bush’s ‘Running Up That Hill’

Kim Petras has re-recorded Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.”

Bush’s version appealed to a new audience when it received a placement in season 4 of the Netflix series, Stranger Things.

The release apparently has nothing to do with the Stranger Things sensation and its subsequent Billboard resurgence. The track was released as an exclusive Amazon Original for Pride Month and currently leads the Proud Amazon Music’s playlist for LGBTQ+ artists.

While acknowledging her long-held personal admiration for the song, Petras made a statement, writing: “I have always been obsessed with ‘Running Up That Hill.’ It means so much and it’s so elusive. You can definitely decide what you want it to mean. For me, it’s about equality. And my timing for this was strangely perfect!”

Petras recently released her Slut Pop EP in February and is working on her major label debut album.

TL;DR:

  • Kim Petras has re-recorded Kate Bush’s “Running Up That Hill.”
  • The release apparently has nothing to do with the Stranger Things sensation and its subsequent Billboard resurgence.
  • It was released as an exclusive Amazon Original for Pride Month
