I know what you’re thinking: “Wow this sounds a lot like Britney Spears.” And you can thank Bloodshy’s production credit—he also worked on Britney Spears’ “Toxic” for the pop number Hilary Duff released Monday. Off Duff’s forthcoming full-length, her first collection in seven years, and co-written by Swedish songstress du jour Tove Lo, “Sparks” is an easy-to-digest summer jam of the most charming sort. 

Duff previewed the collection in an interview with Time earlier this spring. “The album has taken on a lot of different lives, which I guess is to be expected when you’ve taken such big break,” she said. “It is a little bit of electro-pop, a lot of it is just straight-forward pop and some of it has gotten pretty dance-y, which is cool. Some songs still have a little bit of a folky side.”
