Latex Messiah (Viva la Rebel in You), released in 2007, was the first ever digital single by Toyah and the first new material since 2003’s Velvet Lined Shell.
- The song was written by Toyah and her collaborator Simon Darlow, and was produced by Darlow. It was her first single release since 1994 and also her first digital release. The track served as the lead single from Toyah’s new studio album In the Court of the Crimson Queen which was released almost a year later. The song reached various download charts in iTunes Store.
- Several “guerilla footage” homemade videos were shot for the song in collaboration with photographer Dean Stockings. They were uploaded on Toyah’s Myspace page and her official YouTube channel.
- Live drums were added to the track when it was remixed for the 2019 Deluxe Edition of the album released by Demon Records for Record Store Day.
- Robert Fripp added a new guitar section to the track in 2021 for a Posh Redux remodelling of the track set for inclusion on the 2023 Rhythm Deluxe Edition of the Crimson Queen album. It will also be released as a digital single on 13 January 2023.
