Body Talk
Album lyrics Robyn

Release date: November 2010

Body Talk is the fifth studio album by Swedish recording artist Robyn. It was released on 22 November 2010 in the United States and Scandinavia. It is the third and final part of the Body Talk series. The album contains five songs apiece from the previous two Body Talk albums, and five new songs. The new tracks have been made available separately as Body Talk Pt. 3 in certain territories such as the United States and Germany. Robyn described the album as the "turbo version of the Body Talk album", as it includes five songs from each previous Body Talk album along with five new songs.

The album was promoted mainly by the release of the single "Indestructible" released on 1 November 2010. It is co-written by Klas Åhlund, and has been described as a "pulsating full power version that takes every ounce of that emotion and wraps it up in another exceptional disco-pop record worthy of any dance-floor or passion-laden sing-a-long."

Background

In an interview with Swedish magazine Bon, Robyn announced that she had plans to release three new albums in 2010. She said, "I got all these great songs so why not? [...] It's been 5 years since Robyn and I didn't want to wait with a release until they are all recorded, so I decided to start putting them out right away." Robyn told Popjustice journalist Peter Robinson, "It's been a long time since I actually made a record! And I was thinking of how to shorten that time down and Eric, my manager, came up with the idea of what if I just start releasing songs, then I can tour them, then I can make some more songs. We started working like that. I think once it starts it will make more sense – you can just keep releasing stuff without the long breaks."

"[...] It was never my goal to break some kind of a world record in how many songs I could release in a year. Although I think it would count as a pretty good attempt, it's been about the process for me. It's been very interesting to try and figure out a more organic way of making music. A way that is unbiased and has it's starting point in what feels logical to me, but also to the listeners.

Even though it was never a conceptual idea, but a practical solution to the problem of getting bored with just doing one thing at a time, it has influenced not only the music, but all the visual content for the album as well. And the way I've communicated with press and listeners. [...]" — Robyn explaining the concept of the Body Talk series
