Hilary Duff is rocking a black bikini in the video for her comeback single "Chasing the Sun."

The song and video officially released on Tuesday, although it leaked online the day before.

Duff described it as a "light and fun summer song." Colbie Caillat, Toby Gad, and Jason Reeves co-wrote the tune, which Duff hopes "helps people to feel a little more carefree."

The song marks Duff's return to the music industry after a seven-year break.

"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," Duff 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!"

The upcoming studio album will be Duff's fifth. The singer and actor, who rose to fame as star of Disney's hit series Lizzie McGuire, released her first album (Santa Claus Lane) in 2002.
