Good things come to those who wait! Based on how long Hilary Duff fans have been waiting for her new music, her newly announced single ‘Chasing the Sun’ is going to be amazing.

To recap, it’s been seven years since the former Disney’s star’s last album ‘Dignity’ gave us dance beats like ‘With Love’ and ‘Play With Fire.’ Over the last few months she’s been hitting the studio for her next album (finally!), working on delivering a new sound and new collaborations.

In March, the 26-year-old posted a teaser on Instagram of things to come when she shared a photo of herself signing a contract. She wrote, “I! Have! A! Record! Deal!”

It’s official now! She signed with RCA Records for her fifth studio album, due out this fall. Her first single off of the upcoming album will premiere along with its music video on July 29, and it’s already available for preorder on iTunes. ‘Chasing the Sun’ — penned by Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves and Toby Gad — will hopefully hold fans over until the release of her full LP.

“I took a break from music for quite awhile, but it gave me the power to choose my next steps carefully and I’m really proud of the album I’ve made,” Hilary said in a statement on her much-anticipated return. “I’ve worked very hard and the album is a great representation of the experiences I’ve had in my life and where I want to go from here!”

Get the ‘Chasing the Sun’ countdown started, Hilary fans. Less than a week to go!
