The unstoppable Adele will release her fourth single from her multiple-Grammy-winning album 21 in March. "Rumour Has It" has been chosen to follow "Rolling in the Deep," "Someone Like You" and the singer's most recent Number One, "Set Fire to the Rain," says Ryan Tedder, who co-wrote the song with Adele and produced the track. 

"I found out three days ago that I have the next single," Tedder told Billboard on the red carpet at the Grammys. "I'm very excited."

"Rumour Has It" has already appeared on the Billboard Hot 100, reaching Number 60 in December, when the cast of Glee went to Number 11 with their mash-up of the song and "Someone Like You." "Rumour Has It" also topped Billboard's adult alternative chart last summer.

Tedder said he's honored to be a part of the Adele phenomenon. "I'm just excited that somebody as raw and real has cut through at radio and cut through at culture," he said. "I've never seen anything like it."
