Hilary Duff may be physically at work in her new music video, but in her mind she’s chasing the sun.
The singer’s return to music after a seven-year hiatus brings a happy and upbeat sound in her first single and music video “Chasing the Sun,” which premiered on Vevo Tuesday.
“I’m chasing the sun / Won’t miss out on the fun / Gotta get it while our hearts are young / I’m chasing the sun,” she sings.
The song, co-written by Colbie Caillat, has an “earthy, indie-pop vibe” that many can relate to. It’s Duff’s first release since 2007’s “Dignity,” which debut at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and went gold.
“I took a break from music for quite a while, but it gave me the power to choose my next steps carefully and I’m really proud of the album I’ve made,” she said in a release about her latest untitled album under her new label RCA.
The 26-year-old singer-actress described the new track as “a light and fun summer song that I hope helps people to feel a little more carefree.”
With no official release date or name for her new album, fans will just have to settle for the latest single from Duff for now.
“‘Chasing the Sun’ is just a peek into my new album,” the mother of one to son Luca with estranged husband Mike Comrie said. “I’ve worked very hard and the album is a great representation of the experiences I’ve had in my life and where I want to go from here!”
