It’s staggering to think it’s been seven long years since Hilary Duff released her last album ‘Dignity’. Back in 2007, the little site you’re currently reading wasn’t even around and the only Duff moments we’ve covered in our six and a bit year history have revolved around her 2008 ‘Best Of Hilary Duff’ compilation.
A selection of film and TV roles have occupied her time during the past six years, but there’s been no new music to speak of… until now.
‘Chasing The Sun’ was announced recently as the lead single from Hilary’s long-awaited fifth studio album. Not only did the single premiere globally on digital retailers yesterday, but Hils took the opportunity to reveal the official video too.
It’s cute. A summery guitar-driven pop track with a similarly cute video that sees Hilary daydreaming of sharing the beach with a hunky topless man. But is it different enough from her old tunes to tempt her former fandom into buying? It’s already been in the top 30 on iTunes, so we guess so.
