Kate Bush’s 1985 hit “Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God)” has been experiencing a resurgence in recent weeks after its inclusion in the new season of “Stranger Things”, sending the song to hit No. 1 on iTunes and re-enter the Billboard charts nearly 40 years after its release.

The song’s recent popularity clearly captured the attention of Halsey, who performed a cover version during her set at Saturday night’s Governors Ball festival in Queens, New York.
