It follows the group of friends from the fictional town of Hawkins in 1986, six months after the Battle of Starcourt Mall, who face a new supernatural threat.

“It’s such a good show, I thought the track would get a bit of attention,” said the 63-year-old British singer in an interview broadcast by BBC Radio on Wednesday.

“But I never thought it would be something like this. It’s so exciting. But it’s pretty annoying, really. I mean the whole world has gone crazy,” she added.

“Having all these very young people hearing and discovering the song for the first time is very special,” she continued, adding that she herself “never” heard her old tracks.

With her track hitting number one in the UK and abroad on June 17, Kate Bush broke several records including longest time between releases of single (1985) and its rise to the top of the charts. She also became the oldest artist to top the charts.

“There was great music in the ’80s, but I think we’re in an incredibly exciting time today,” although it’s “very difficult” for a lot of people, she said.
