Robbie told us in his blog that he didn't think Bodies was going to be a single, even Trevor Horn (who produced Robbie's forthcoming album, Reality Killed The Video Star) said: "Bodies was a rank outsider. Initially, we were definitely not considering it as the first single, but I tried changing from electronic instruments to real instruments and it suddenly blew everyone's heads off and Robbie loved it."
That's why today we're super-excited - Bodies is Robbie's new single and, after what seems like forever, it's finally released today!
Taken from his forthcoming album Reality Killed The Video Star, Bodies is available in two formats: CD and digital download.
The CD features the Bodies single version plus the barnstorming Body Double Remix, whilst, in addition to these two tracks, the digital download also includes the Fred Falke Remix too.
If you've pre-ordered your copy of Robbie's single you'll have no doubt already picked it up from your digital retailer or be looking forward to the post arriving.

Bodies sounds like Robbie and Trevor Horn bringing out the best in each other - in this case 'the best' equalling a big comeback single from Britain's best male popstar. Popjustice
