Circle of One is the third album by the American vocalist, pianist and songwriter Oleta Adams and was released in 1990. Circle of One was Adams' first album to receive wide distribution; her two earlier albums (an untitled album in 1982 and Going on Record in 1983) were self-financed and only received local distribution.
After a successful collaboration with Tears for Fears on their 1989 album The Seeds of Love, Adams was offered a record deal of her own with Tears for Fears then-label Fontana Records. Produced by Tears for Fears' Roland Orzabal with Dave Bascombe, the album was initially unsuccessful as were the first two singles "Rhythm of Life" and "Circle of One". However, Adams had a hit in early 1991 with the third single from the album, her cover of Brenda Russell's "Get Here," which peaked at #4 in the UK and #5 in the US. The album, which had received considerable critical acclaim, was rereleased with two additional tracks and peaked at #1 in the UK and made the US Top 20. It was certified Gold in both the UK and the US and received two Grammy nominations.
