Hilary Duff has revealed that she's nervous about her return to music as the business has changed a lot during her six-year hiatus.

The Texan singer and actress, who appeared in teen TV show Lizzie McGuire, plans to release a new album next year and she told the Winnipeg Sun that she finds other female artists intimidating.

"It's such a different business now. Honestly, it can be intimidating. I'm not comparing myself to [Miley Cyrus] but a lot of the things that go on in pop music are not me or who I am. Or not yet. Who knows what I'm going to wake up tomorrow and feel like?

"I really just try to come and be who I am and one person that I think is a really good example is Taylor Swift. She's really honest with her lyrics and her stage show isn't like some crazy thing that's controversial. But I think what Miley Cyrus is doing is really cool and I think she's being who she wants to be and that is important. And so I respect that."

In th interview, she also talked about the direction of her new album. "There's some EDM influence. And then some songs kind of like indie and earthy. I don't know, that sounds really weird. Some songs have really heavy piano. Some have like funky weird tinkering sounds."

Duff's last album Dignity was released in 2007.
