Co-produced by Colbie Cailat, the track scheduled to hit iTunes on Tuesday, July 29 comes as a preview of Duff's new album that's coming out later this year via RCA.
Hilary Duff's comeback single "Chasing the Sun" is here. Marking the singer/actress' first music in years, the new track unexpectedly hit the web on Monday, July 28 - a day before it's officially released on iTunes.
The song is a radio-friendly, pure pop tune with a 1990s/early 2000s feel. "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," Duff sings the chorus.
" 'Chasing the Sun' is a light and fun summer song that I hope helps people to feel a little more carefree," the former "Lizzie McGuire" star recently said of the song co-produced by Toby Gad, Colbie Caillat and Jason Reeves. A music video has been shot and is scheduled to be released on July 29.
The track serves as the first single off Duff's comeback album that's due out later this year via RCA Records. "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!" she explained. "I took a break from music for quite awhile, but it gave me the power to choose my next steps carefully and I'm really proud of the album I've made."
