"(I Don't Need You To) Set Me Free" is the third single by alternative rock group Grinderman, and final single from their eponymous debut album, Grinderman. Much like their first single "Get It On", the single is a special a-side only release.
The single did not receive as much acclaim as the band's previous two singles, however reception ranged from mixed to positive, with Pitchfork Media stating that:
the measured soul of "(I Don't Need You to) Set Me Free" and the familiar melodrama [...] are prime Cave, but each marks a slight deviation from the Grinderman aesthetic. They're just a little too classy, too neat, despite the roaring undercurrent of musical violence in the last, which picks up right before the song cuts off.
