Hilary Duff is coming easy and clean in her upcoming album "Dignity".
In juggling between her teen fans and the grown up ones, Hilary Duff came wise in next album "Dignity". Unlike the previous album which was in rock/pop genre, she lets this album to have dance/pop vibe. That is something that she explained as 'didn't mean to go that way'.
Duff is even involved in the writing of the songs. She co-wrote the entire songs with Kara DioGuardi who has written songs for Gwen Stefani and Christina Aguilera. "I knew I couldn't do it myself, but working with Kara allowed me to talk about things on my mind. It was one big therapy session," she said in a statement.
The themes in the songs that she wrote employ a full circle issues occurring in a relationship such as break up, doubt, resolution and of course, love. She said, "People don't know a lot about my life, but these songs are self-explanatory. It was crazy to be in the midst of a loving relationship, then not knowing why you're still there, then not being in it. I cover these emotions and the feeling of being in the dark."
Next in her agenda is to promote the album. She will have several headlining tours which are not yet announced. Upon the name chosen for the album she said, "I don't insinuate that I have a ton of dignity -- come on, I'm 19 -- but it's something I strive to possess and important in how you treat others, how you handle your job and treat yourself. It's also something that can be easily lost. I hope I can hold on to dignity as I move forward."
"Dignity" will be out in stores on April 3 via Disney's Hollywood Records label. Her previous album "Metamorphosis" reached #1 in Billboard 200 and the single "Come Clean" sat in Top 40 in Billboard 100 for several weeks.
