Brave New World is the tenth UK single by the band Toyah, fronted by Toyah Willcox, and was the only single release from The Changeling.
- “Brave New World” was released in May 1982 as the first and only single from The Changeling. It was available as a 7″ vinyl single as well as a picture disc. The cover photograph was taken by Roger Charity and features Toyah in make-up painted by the artist Caroline Cohen
- The single, which was backed by an exclusive b-side and a music video (heavily inspired by David Bowie’s “Ashes to Ashes”) directed by David Mallett, reached Number 21 in the UK singles chart, and although further single releases from the album were mooted, none appeared.
- Despite the apparent influence of Bowie’s video, Toyah herself has denied any attempt to copy him: “But I’d never dream of trying to be like Bowie, because he’s the greatest.”
