Hilary Duff Announces Album Title By Mailing Fans Balloons


It's been a long time coming for Hilary Duff, but we finally know when we can expect her new album -- her follow-up to 2007's Dignity. And the singer announced her album title, cover and drop date in a very unexpected way: through balloons.

HilDuff mailed ballons with the album cover printed on them to fans (Taylor Swift-style) with a written note. Presenting: Breathe In. Breathe Out, Hil's fifth album, coming in June (which she confirmed in a radio interview). The album cover is in the same minimalistic style as her "Sparks" art. The video for "Sparks" is said to be coming out today as well.

Let's just say it's a big day for Hilary fans.

Hilary has been riding the wave to her comeback for a while now, first releasing "Chasing the Sun" in 2014, followed by "All About You," and most recently, "Sparks." She told us that her album was about more "heavy" times in her life (a.k.a. her struggles with marriage and custody of her 3-year-old son Luca), but she's keeping it upbeat. In that case, the album's title makes perfect sense. "No matter how you feel ..happy/sad/excited/overwhelmed/sexy/pissed .... #breatheinbreatheout," she wrote on Twitter early Thursday morning (May 14).

Fans are overjoyed.

One clever fan even pointed out a nod from Hilary back in January.

Hilary says there's more to come. She's making an appearance on "Ellen" today, so stay tuned!
