‘Diva Lady’ was the first single from the album Victory For The Comic Muse.

A couple of demos were released as digital downloads, one is an early version entitled ‘Black Holes’, and the other is an almost finished version with the same lyrics. An acoustic version was released as well.

A video was produced for the single and directed by Rachel Reupke from Factory Films and produced by Zeno. It features cuttings from vintage magazines, in which videos of the faces Neil Hannon and a lady have been inserted.
