The brief Instagram video (watch below) was one of many beach-themed posts to promote her forthcoming single “Chasing the Sun,” which debuts on July 29. In an effort to spread the word, Duff’s team hired airplanes to fly across numerous U.S. cities pulling a sign that read, “Hilary Duff - Chasing the Sun - July 29th!” The singer encouraged fans to send her photos of the planes flying over their towns, and even posed on the beach with one flying in the background.

"Chasing the Sun" is the first single from Duff’s fifth studio album, which she is currently recording. The set, her first since 2007’s Dignity, is scheduled for release this fall. The new track was written by Colbie Caillat, Jason Reeves and Toby Gad.

"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. 'Chasing the Sun' is a light and fun summer song that I hope helps people to feel a little more carefree,” Duff said in a recent statement.
