Hilary Duff promised a music sneak peek, and “Sparks” is exactly the pop gem that fans have been hoping for. It’s only a one minute snippet, but we already love this new direction! “Sparks” was co-written by new hit-maker Tove Lo, and produced by Bloodshy and Peter Thomas, and it will be the new single from Hilary’s upcoming comeback album.
While the first two singles – 2014’s “Chasing The Sun” and “All About You” – had a laid-back, folk-pop sound, “Sparks” goes more in the direction of Hilary’s last studio album, Dignity. Released in April 2007, Dignity had a slick dance-pop sound that was just ahead of its time. “Sparks” is a welcome return to that style, but with a modern update. And there’s more where that came from: Hilary told Time that her new record features plenty of electro-pop and dance-influenced pop, in addition to a few of her folky songs from last year.
You can hear a preview of “Sparks” in the video below, which doubles as an advertisement for Hilary’s new TV show, Younger. The comedy drama series will officially premiere on March 31st, and stars Hilary as Kelsey, a smart but wild young woman working in a publishing firm. Younger has already gotten great reviews from early viewers.
“Sparks” will be released in full on April 7th, and Hilary’s long-awaited new album should be out very soon after.
