Adele To Release “Set Fire To The Rain” As Third Single Off ’21’

By: Becky Bain / November 9, 2011

How is it possible that we’re 10 months into the release of Adele’s 21, the most successful album of the year, and she has only dropped two singles thus far? “Rolling In The Deep” and “Someone Like You” both enjoyed extended stays atop the Hot 100, and if the Brit singer’s lucky streak continues, her third single “Set Fire To The Rain” will follow suit. Billboard reports that Ryan Tedder-produced “Rumour Has It” was also considered to be the next single, but “research found more programmer preference” for “Set Fire To The Rain”. Listen to Adele’s fiery tune below if you haven’t yet heard it — though you probably have, since it’s more than likely you own several copies of 21 already.

“Set Fire To The Rain” was released as the second single from 21 in Europe. It was released as a third single in the UK back in July, when it shot up to #1. The song will impact US radio on November 22.
