Huh? What single? Hilary Duff is ready to go with Round 2.
After the lukewarm premiere of her bubbly yet bite-less, Sheryl Crow-lite “Chasing The Sun” less than two weeks ago, the Dignity diva’s already decided to turn it around in record time with a second song from the record: “All About You,” a significantly punchier pop offering.
The track, penned by a powerhouse troupe of pop songwriters (Carl Falk, Savan Kotecha and Kristian Lundin), supplies a feisty burst of “folkier-type” pop energy — think The Lumineers‘ “Ho Hey” mixed with Taylor Swift‘s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” Avril Lavigne‘s “Here’s To Never Growing Up” and, perhaps most of all, Charli XCX‘s “Boom Clap.” (HilDuff unknowingly turned down “Boom Clap” while recording her new album. Luckily, she’s basically just recorded her own.)
“Think you’re all about me, but I’m all about you,” Hil happily flirts across the catchy, sing-along friendly chorus.
Hand claps, chants, and folky gee-tars might not exactly be the ideal production of my dreams (yee-haw!), but this song’s got infinitely more mmphhh than “Chasing The Sun.” Plus, it’s cute to hear Hil get just a lil’ bit saucy.
Turn the lights down…let her show you it’s true!
“All About You” was released on August 12. (iTunes)
