New Toyah Song?: Frail Pool

April 1st, 2012

Rumours are brewing of a brand new Toyah track called ‘Frail Pool’ that has been recorded to mark Toyah’s 54th birthday next month. Apparently 54 is a significant number for Toyah and she felt she needed to do something special for it. What could be more special than new Toyah music?

As 2012 is significant anniversary years for both ‘The Changeling’ and ‘Desire’ albums the song will be inspired by elements from both. There’s a little more info on this exciting news here.
