Hilary Duff: New album started off heavy

Hilary Duff is pleased her latest record has changed from its original state as she’s not a “super heavy girl”.

The 27-year-old singer is currently working on a new record, as well as promoting her latest TV show Younger. While her life is in a good place now, it wasn’t all happy times when she first started writing songs for the disc, having split from husband Mike Comrie in January last year.

“The album is a range of stuff — I would say definitely in the beginning when I started writing, it was pretty heavy, coming out of my past year of — life,” she told MTV News. “It’s changed since then, which is good because I think that the overall theme too — me, personally, I’m not this super heavy girl. You know? I’m one for the sunshine, so it’s shifted a lot and it feels a lot better to me.”

Hilary married the Canadian NHL player in August 2010 after they began dating in 2007. The couple welcomed son Luca in March 2012 but split amicably at the start of 2014. While there had been rumours of a reconciliation, Hilary filed for divorce in February this year.

But despite her sadness over the end of her marriage, the former Lizzie McGuire star has still managed to inject some fun and upbeat numbers into her album.

“There’s a lot of dance — but it is heartfelt,” she explained. “A lot of the songs are about love, a lot of them around about loss, one of them is about Luca. It’s just more easy. It’s not super heavy material. I’m excited for people to hear it. I’m excited about the place we got it to.”

The track about her little boy is called This Heart, but fans will have to wait a while longer to hear it as there is no scheduled release date for the album as yet.
