Kate Bush has praised the organisers of the Olympic closing ceremony, after a remix of “Running Up That Hill” was used in last night’s finale.
The track prematurely appeared on Amazon last week, sparking rumours that the reclusive singer was going to make a rare live performance. The track was subsequently taken down, before being officially released after last night’s (August 12) event.
Posting on KateBush.com, Bush wrote: “I hope you all enjoyed the remix of Running Up That Hill this evening at the Olympics Closing Ceremony. They certainly put on a brilliant show.”
The remix of “Running Up That Hill” featured last night as a group of dancers built a pyramid out of white boxes while highlights of the Games were shown through the stadium.
A Symphony of British Music: Music For The Closing Ceremony of the London 2012 Olympic Games, an album containing music performed tonight, is now available digitally via iTunes.
