Why do we like this?

Meg Myers is on a great run. Last year she dropped her hugely underrated third album, Take Me To The Disco, and a few months ago played NPR's famed Tiny Desk series.

One of the songs she performed on the show was a cover of Kate Bush's mythical "Running Up The Hill." Today the Tennessee born singer songwriter has released an official video for her inspiring take on Bush's classic.

The animated film clip features hand coloured creations from 2,130 school children across America, including many from the Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA) school - a non profit that gives underserved kids an equal chance to succeed through a comprehensive array of after-school academic, arts, athletics and wellness programs. Speaking on the video herself, Myers says;

This video is about transformation. Jo Roy, the director and I were inspired to express in this video that we can change our story we’ve been living when we follow our hearts and our intuition, our guts. This video shows the evolution of me as a caterpillar turning into a month/butterfly.

This cover is more proof that Myers can do no wrong, transforming Bush's feminist anthem into a captivating modern pop song that still resonates today, some three decades after it was first released.
