Hilary Duff Releases First New Music In 7 YearsBy: Amanda Crum - August 15, 2014
Hilary Duff has been hard at work on a new album, and although it’s untitled and doesn’t have an official release date, she’s more than happy to share bits and pieces of it with her fans.
Duff gets a little bit folksy, a little bit poppy, and a little bit personal on the album, which she says was the goal. After seven years away from the music industry, the former Disney star has grown a lot and started a family, which had a profound influence on her writing.
“The album is very positive, it’s very up, but it does talk about… there’s a song called ‘If I Fall,’ which is about me taking a step back and kind of shutting down my whole business, and everyone not believing in me and me being really scared to be alone after I’d been surrounded by 100 people for five years of my life,” says the former Disney star. “And then the other ones are like, some party songs, a song about [my son] Luca, a song about my separation and my love for this person that maybe we’re not meant to be together, or maybe we are. I mean, it’s very, very personal, but I would say that it has a happy spirit to it, which is me,” she said.
One of those songs may or may not be about her ex, Mike Comrie, who is the father of her son Luca. However, Duff said the two have remained friendly for the sake of their child.
“We’re both doing so well that I’d rather not talk about it because it’s old news. But we both care about [our son] and being the best parents we can be is our main focus,” she said.
