Hilary Duff has spent her summer staging a comeback, with initial plans to release a new album this fall. On August 29, though, she announced on Twitter that she is delaying the full-length’s release. “Guys hate to break this news but the album won’t be out in October,” Duff said. “You will have to wait a few more months. Love all the excitement tho.”
Duff had released two lead singles from her comeback album so far: “Chasing the Sun,” the breezy and innocent ode to summer co-written by Colbie Caillat; and “All About You,” a sassier and punchier pop anthem by hitmakers Savan Kotecha, Carl Falk and Kristian Lundin. Both songs helped to show the folkier bent that Duff had in mind for her return, following 2007′s underrated Dignity, while inspired by groups like Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers.
Duff had spent the past year or so prepping new music, right as she was reflecting on her 2004 debut Metamorphosis. “Once I started getting into the studio and being more hands-on with the music I was making, I was a little embarrassed by Metamorphosis,” she said to Idolator at the time. “But I don’t feel that way now. So many people were connected by this. It put me on a map with my music, and they are good pop songs.”
