Anthem Of The Free

Anthem Of The Free

‘I Want To Be Free’ was one of Toyah’s biggest hits, reaching No. 8 in the UK in 1981. Bolstered by the performance of the previous single, ‘It’s A Mystery’, and backed by an appearance on Top of the Pops, ‘I Want To Be Free’ helped promote her accompanying album Anthem (which peaked at No. 2). It was also Toyah‘s most internationally successful single, troubling the charts in Ireland, Australia and New Zealand, among others. Toyah was Safari Records’ most successful artist, with eight albums and numerous hits between 1981 and 1983, including ‘It’s A Mystery’ and ‘Thunder In The Mountains’ (both No. 4). ‘Good Morning Universe’ (No. 14), and ‘Brave New World’ (No. 21). We represent all of Toyah’s Safari-era output.
