The QUEEN is coming back!
Hilary Duff has been cockteasing us about making a pop comeback for years now — one minute she’s ready to record, the next minute she’s back into acting or marriage or feeding her dog or whatever the hell she does to pass the time. But now the Disney legend is officially recording new music again, with plans to return with a new album (and maybe a tour!) after her baby is born.
Duff only returned to the studio this week, but she’s already completed one new track which has been described as “amazing“. The new tune was produced by hitmaker Matt Squire, who has worked with the likes of Selena Gomez, One Direction, Panic! at the Disco, and All Time Low, and written by Ali Tamposi, who co-wrote Kelly Clarkson’s current single “What Doesn’t Kill You (Stronger)”.
And while Hilary’s latest collaborators are of the pop-rock variety (I couldn’t find any dance tracks in Squire’s discography), remember that some of Dignity was a mixture of pop-rock with electro and urban, so don’t get your panties in a bunch just yet worrying that Hilary has returned to her tween-rock days.
Hil’s also been taking vocal lessons over the past few months, with the plan being to record new music while she’s stationary during her pregnancy. After the baby is born, she’ll not only be working on her return to pop, but is also planning to start doing mainstream movies again after filming a string of indie flops over the past several years.
It looks like Selena Gomez’s break from music came at just the right time — she wanted avoid having that wig snatched!
Omfg so excited!
