Canada's very own Bryan Adams has launched another single from upcoming album So Happy It Hurts. This time it's the upbeat Never Gonna Rain, which follows previous singles Kick Ass (featuring comedian John Cleese), the title track, and On The Road.

"The ultimate optimist is someone who keeps on expecting the best, even in the face of the worst," says Adams, explaining Never Gonna Rain. "Living in the moment, instead of in fear. Turning the negatives into positives. Taking the rain and turning it into a gift."

The video for the single was directed Adams, and was filmed last November in the loading bay of the Wynn Hotel, Las Vegas, with guitarist Keith Scott on guitar and drummer Pat Steward.

So Happy It Hurts will be available on standard CD, deluxe CD with a lenticular cover and hardbound book, two shades of vinyl and various bundles. There's also a limited edition box set which includes the deluxe CD, vinyl, hardbound book and signed photo. All variants are available from the Bryan Adams webstore (opens in new tab)
