After the incredible worldwide success of Rolling In The Deep and Someone Like You, Adele is finally moving on to the third single from her mega-selling album 21.

Set Fire to the Rain has already been charting around the world – hitting number one in Belgium and the Netherlands with no real promotion – for several months but it now has an official release date of July 4.

The song is rapidly climbing the UK airplay chart and is expected to be her third straight top 10 hit in her homeland.

Meanwhile, 21 has now sold around seven million copies globally – with approximately 2 million of those coming from the UK alone.

Lady Gaga is generally considered to be the biggest thing in music, but Adele is easily outselling and out-charting her, and with much less fanfare.

Watch the British songbird perform her latest single live on Jools Holland below.
