After guitarist Joe Perry left Aerosmith in 1979, he formed his solo project, aptly titled The Joe Perry Project. He released his first album, Let the Music Do the Talking in 1980. The song was included as the first song and title track of the record.
In 1984, Joe Perry and Brad Whitford rejoined Aerosmith. Aerosmith recorded the album Done with Mirrors in 1985. Lead singer Steven Tyler and the other band members were quite impressed with Perry's "Let the Music Do the Talking" and decided to include it on the album. The song was re-recorded by Aerosmith with new lyrics sung by Steven Tyler, and the running time was reduced by about a minute. The song was issued as a single shortly after the album's release. It became the album's most successful single, peaking at #18 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.
