Background Information

“Fire” was released by Island Records, but there was no release in North America. It was released in the UK, Europe, Australia, South Africa, and a 12-inch version was made available throughout Europe.

The promotional 7-inch issued by Island in the UK was similar to the one issued for “I Will Follow”. The single was a one sided 7-inch vinyl, with a black label similar to that on the single release on one side, and a plain yellow label on the back. The promotional single was released in limited quantities to radio stations and music magazines.

Acetate versions of “Fire” do exist in Warner Brothers packaging, suggesting that Warner’s had looked at the possibility of releasing it as a single in the USA but never did.
