All About You

Album: Breathe In. Breathe Out. - Fanjoy edition (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Hilary Duff penned this folk-pop tune about the honeymoon-phase kind of love with frequent One Direction songwriters Savan Kotecha and Carl Falk plus their fellow Swede Kristian Lundin (N Sync's "Bye Bye Bye," Celine Dion's "That's The Way It Is").
  • Duff performed the song live for the first time on The X Factor Australia on September 8, 2014.
  • The song's music video was directed by Declan Whitebloom, who Duff worked with on her previous clip for "Chasing the Sun." The visual features line-dancing and hoedown-inspired choreography as the singer tries to track down a mystery man that she spots in a coffee shop.

    "We played with the filters a little bit more in this [video], so it's a little more artistic," the former Lizzie McGuire star told Billboard magazine. "The song has a banjo and some percussion in it, so it has a little bit of a folk element, and I got inspired with that. So when I was meeting with the choreographers, I was like, 'I really want to line-dance, and do knee-slapping, foot-stomping stuff that everyone can catch onto and do.'"
