What can we expect?
In an interview with Idolator, Hilary Duff provided details on her comeback album and her 2003 album Metamorphosis, which celebrates its tenth anniversary today. Duff has just started recording the album.
She said: "I'm super into EDM. I have a big long list of people I want to work with and a pretty clear direction or where I want to go."
Her album Dignity came out shortly before the urban pop genre moved into a house-inflected radio sound.
She also commented on her lyrics. She added: "My music has always been very lyrically driven. I care so much about that. So that's my only thing. There are so many artists that I love but I'm like, ‘I can't connect to that, so I don't really know what it means.' It's too abstract for me to follow. I can still sing along and love it, but I'm not totally stuck on it, because I'm really attracted to lyrics. I want to keep that in the back of my mind."
Her earlier studio sessions likely won't make the album. She previously worked with Martin Johnson (Avril Lavigne, Victoria Justice), Matt Squire (Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato) and Ali Tamposi (Kelly Clarkson, Ciara) but will be going in a new direction. She said: "That was over a year back when I was just not talking about it, but wanting to flex my muscles again in the studio. That sound isn't really where I want to go."
Finally, she talked about her 2003 single "Come Clean", which she says may influence the new album. She said: "With ‘Come Clean,' even now as I start to make music again, it's something that I'll take and say, ‘Like this, but let's make it more current.' It's such a great song."
