"Four More From Toyah" was the ninth UK single, and third EP by the band Toyah, fronted by Toyah Willcox, and was released at the end of 1981.

The lead track on the release, "Good Morning Universe", was not included on an album at the time, nor were the other three tracks on the EP. The first 100,000 pressings of the single also came with a free flexidisc, containing a fifth exclusive track, "Stand Proud". This collectability helped the single reach Number 14 in the UK Singles Charts.

Two tracks from the single, "Good Morning Universe" and "In the Fairground" were eventually included on the 1999 reissue of The Changeling, and "The Furious Futures" and "Stand Proud" was included on the 1998 compilation Proud, Loud & Heard: The Best Of Toyah. Another 1998 compilation, Toyah! Live & More, featured "Urban Tribesmen". Finally, all tracks from the release, bar "Stand Proud" feature on the 2005 compilation The Safari Singles Collection Part 2: 1981-1983.
