She’s been away from the public spotlight for years to focus on her life as a new mother, but Hilary Duff is finally back with a new video for her just-released single “Chasing The Sun.” While the former Disney queen is back to singing, the track, which was penned by Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves and Toby Gad, leaves a lot to be desired.
“Chasing The Sun” is a lighthearted summer song where Duff steps back into her Lizzie McGuire shoes and sings about living in the moment without a care in the world. It’s an easygoing and cute affair, but hits more Colbie Caillat and Sara Bareilles territory than we had expected or even wanted. But again, at least Duff is back to her bread and butter.
“Won’t miss out on the fun/ Gotta get it while our hearts are young/ I’m chasing the sun,” she croons atop a melody that sounds like Sheryl Crow’s “Soak Up the Sun.”
