Toyah has released Summer of Love as the latest cut from her new ‘Posh Pop’ album.
The ‘80s icon will drop her forthcoming record on August 27, featuring previously-released tracks Levitate and Zoom Zoom, and this week reveals a third single from the LP.
“For me, this is an anti-war song,” says Toyah. “In the original summer of love there were many wars that shouldn’t have been going on, where young people lost their lives or their minds”
‘Posh Pop; is the star’s first original collection since 2008’s ‘In The Court Of The Crimson Queen’, and was produced in collaboration with Simon Darlow and her husband, King Crimson’s Robert Fripp.
She told NME: “‘Posh Pop’ was a magical experience created out of the need and ability to make contact with our fans in a heartfelt way.
“Also the terrifying distance between those who run the world and those on the ground inspired my writing.”
In addition to CD and Vinyl variants, the album is also available as a special CD + DVD package, featuring 10 music videos for the album, directed-by and starring Toyah, along with Robert and Simon.
‘Posh Pop’ is available to pre-order on CD, CD+DVD and vinyl.
