On 22 May 2015, Foxes revealed the name of the single via Twitter.[1] A few hours later, she tweeted a picture of herself wearing roller skates while sitting on top of a kitchen counter, with the title of the song appearing as a hashtag.[2] On 25 May, she posted images from the song's music video shoot.[3]

On 2 June, she tweeted "Body Talk"'s cover artwork.[4] The next day, she announced that she would perform the song on BBC Radio 1 on 4 June.[5] Ten minutes prior to her performance, she tweeted for her followers to tune in.[6] That same day, the song was made available for pre-order on iTunes[7] and the audio was posted onto YouTube.[8] On 17 June, Foxes tweeted of herself doing yoga in the car, with "Body Talk"'s title appearing again as a hashtag.[9] On 20 June, she tweeted that the music video for "Body Talk" would be released on 23 June.[10] In keeping with her promise, the video was released three days after the post.

On 4 July, Foxes announced that she would perform "Body Talk" on BBC Radio 2 that day, along with a mystery cover[11]. She posted a flashback to recording the song in the studio four days later[12]. On 8 July, she performed the song live on Periscope[13]. Foxes announced the next day that she'd be teaming up with Google UK to hold a "Body Talk" party[14]. On 10 July, she tweeted that "Body Talk" would be out in two weeks and joked that her eyebrows still existed[15]. On 13 July, she posted a collage of alphabet soup noodles spelling out the song's title[16]. Foxes had interviews about the song on 14 July[17]. On 21 July, she performed a BBC Radio 1 live lounge, where she sang "Body Talk" and covered Ed Sheeran's "Photograph"[18][19]. Foxes' aforementioned "Body Talk" party was held on 24 July[20], the day of the song's release. Prior to the party, she had a Google+ hangout with fans[21]. On 26 July, she performed the song on Sunday Brunch[22]. The next day, she announced that she'd be going back on tour to promote the song and her second album[23]. The tour went on pre-sale two days later[24].

LyricsEdit

Days like these
I just want you back
I can't breathe
I can't even speak
No la la la la la, la la

Gotta rise
Gotta fight
'Cause it's something I wanted
Oh, he's got to go
I can see in the light
It's not right
Now I know
I don't need him

Ooh, let your body talk
Even when you feel so lost
Spinning when the tears
They fall, you just gotta let it go

La la la la la

Days like these
I don't want you back
Now I feel free
Going to keep that like that yeah

Gotta rise
Gotta fight
'Cause it's something I wanted
Oh, he's got to go
I can see in the light
It's not right
Now I know
I don't need him

Ooh, let your body talk
Even when you feel so lost
Spinning when the tears
They fall, you just gotta let it go

Ooh, let your body talk
Even when you feel so lost
Spinning when the tears
They fall, you just gotta let it go

Days like these
I can finally speak like
La la la la la la la la la la

Ooh, let your body talk
Even when you feel so lost
Spinning when the tears
They fall, you just gotta let it go

Ooh, let your body talk
Even when you feel so lost
Spinning when the tears
They fall, you just gotta let it go

Let your body talk
