When Hilary Duff was spotted in her bikini on the set of her new music video, some probably thought she would end her music hiatus with a sexy comeback. Instead, the singer opts for some good, silly fun in her latest video for "Chasing the Sun."

"Chasing the Sun" debuted on Duff's Vevo channel Monday, July 28. In the nearly three-minute video, which features a zoom-in on her lip balm, Duff plays a bored office worker who fantasizes about a sunny getaway. Although the reality of her life behind a desk is bleak -- with embarrassing blunders, kooky coworkers and a gerbil for entertainment -- her daydreaming takes her to a sandy beach where she frolics in a bikini.

“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,” Duff said via a press release from RCA obtained by VH1. “‘Chasing The Sun’ is a light and fun summer song that I hope helps people to feel a little more carefree.”

The single is available Tuesday, July 29, and her album is due out in the fall.
