Actress/singer Hilary Duff is returning to the world of music, having signed with RCA Records for her upcoming fifth album, due out this fall. Duff releases a new single, "Chasing The Sun," on July 29. Its video will debut that day as well. Duff said in a statement, "I couldn't be more excited to join the RCA family! I love my team there and feel so lucky to be in the company of their talented artists. I came to them with my vision for the album and it has been a real labor of love, but something I am so proud of. 'Chasing The Sun' is just a peek into my new album. I've worked very hard and the album is a great representation of the experiences I've had in my life and where I want to go from here!"
     "We are thrilled to welcome Hilary Duff to the RCA Records family," said RCA
Chairman/CEO Peter Edge. "She is a supremely talented young woman, who after achieving massive success at a young age, continues to be an extraordinarily creative, relevant and cutting edge performer with a enduring appeal." "Hilary Duff is a global superstar, a talented singer, actress and performer and we are thrilled to welcome her to RCA Records," added RCA President/COO Tom Corson.

Pharrell has released the video for "Come Get It Bae," his latest single. The track features Miley Cyrus, who appears in the clip, hanging around with Pharrell, who is filming a bevy of dancing models. THe song can also be heard in a recent Red Bull ad. Check out the video below:

Jack White is expanding his Third Man Records empire with a book imprint, naturally called Third Man Books. The first release from Third Man Books is due out August 5 and is a 321-page hardcover book of poetry, prose, and art called Language Lessons: Volume I, which will of course be accompanied by a two record set.

Singer/songwriter Ryan Adams has announced a new fall tour, in support of his upcoming eponymous album, due out September 9. Adams' new dates begin in Santa Barbara on October 1, with shows announced up to October 20 in Kansas City.  

Mudvayne guitarist Greg Tribbett is turning his attention to his work as a producer. Tribbett has inked a deal with Strong Management under its producer/songwriter roster, and he's looking to expand his resume after co-producing all of the Mudvayne albums, the first three Hellyeah records, Nonpoint's Miracle and Man Made Machine's Become. Meanwhile, Mudvayne remains on temporary hiatus. The band recently posted a note on Facebook explaining: "With respect to all the band members, we are all doing something in music that satisfies our appetite right now. When the time is right, Mudvayne WILL be back in action. In no shape or form is this a disrespect to our fans. We Love our Fans and will give them all they can handle when it is time."
