Single Review: Hilary Duff – “Chasing the Sun”

Hilary Duff is back with a brand new single titled “Chasing the Sun.” The song, which was written by Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves and Toby Gad and produced by Toby Gad, is Duff’s first single from her forthcoming as-yet untitled studio album.

Sadly, “Chasing the Sun” isn’t exactly the kind of song you’re likely to remember when it has finished playing, much less in a few years. Not that there is anything wrong with that, but a comeback single should pack more of a punch than this. The melody is engaging enough, but it is severely weakened by the disappointingly clichéd lyrics. It actually almost feels like a ripoff of Sheryl Crow’s “Soak Up the Sun” at times. It’s not all bad news though. I am sure “Chasing the Sun” will find a nice comfy spot on your local adult contemporary station next to Michael Bublé and Jewel – it’s just not going to find a home on any of my playlists. Growing up doesn’t have to sound this boring.

“Chasing the Sun” is out tomorrow.
