Kate has reached No.1 for the THIRD week in a row in the UK! Amazing! To celebrate we asked Kate’s fans to send us photos of them holding their Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) singles and you can see the large version of the image here. Thanks guys! Kate has also today scored her third consecutive week at No.1 in Ireland! And in Australia today Kate returned to No.1 after slipping to No.2 last week. So that’s three non-consecutive weeks at No.1 for her in Australia. Wow. Right, time to find some time to watch Part Two of Stranger Things season 4. What a summer!

Still up on that Hill…
Whoooo Hoooo everybody! I just can’t believe it – No. 1 for the third week. We’re all so excited! In fact it’s all starting to feel a bit surreal.
I’ve just watched the last two episodes of Stranger Things and they’re just through the roof. No spoilers here, I promise. I’d only seen the scenes that directly involved the use of the track and so I didn’t know how the story would evolve or build. I was so delighted that the Duffer Brothers wanted to use RUTH for Max’s totem but now having seen the whole of this last series, I feel deeply honoured that the song was chosen to become a part of their roller coaster journey. I can’t imagine the amount of hard work that’s gone into making something on this scale. I am in awe. They’ve made something really spectacular.
I want to let you know about the amount of unofficial merchandise that’s out there. I haven’t seen it myself but I keep getting reports that there’s a huge amount: T-shirts, etc – some of which is very poor quality, some of which is pretty good and could be mistaken for being official. The only official merchandise is the already existing material that’s available through the official websites.
We hope you understand that we want to honour the energy that’s being generated by the audiences right now. An energy that feels very special, unique and quite frankly, bloody moving.
Thanks very much everyone,
