Paris Hilton returns to music with new album nearly 20 years after debut

Paris Hilton is making her long-awaited return to the music scene with her new LP, Infinite Icon, – 18 years after her debut album.

The singer and socialite, 43, came out with her self-titled record, Paris, in 2006. It featured cult hits like “Stars Are Blind” and “Nothing in This World.”

While Hilton has since dropped a few singles here and there, including 2013’s “Good Time”, 2015’s “High off My Love” and 2020’s “I Blame You”, as well as guest featured on tracks by Sia and Steve Aoki, she has not put out an official follow-up to her first record - that is until September 6, when she releases Infinite Icon.

Hilton first teased her second album last year following the release of “Hot One”, the first single off of the LP.

“I was instantly inspired and knew we had to make this record,” she told Rolling Stone last June. “We went into Sunset Sound Studio and ended up recording 3 songs in just one day! It was magic!”

On a December 2023 episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast, she declared that the forthcoming album “is here to save pop music.”

“I’ve been in the studio [with] Sia executive producing my full album,” Hilton said. “I love her so much.”

She praised Sia for being the “most brilliant songwriter of our time”, before adding the “Like I’m Gonna Lose You” singer, Meghan Trainor, had also written some songs on the “epic” new album.

Hilton’s return to music has been steadily building since her surprise appearance performance of “Stars Are Blind” with Sia and Miley Cyrus at NBC’s 2022 Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party,

She later released an updated version of the song featuring Kim Petras.

Earlier this week, Hilton shared a sweet response to fellow moms after she sparked concern over her son Phoenix’s life jacket in a swimming video. In the video posted to TikTok, the heiress could be seen floating in a lazy river pool with her son in her arms.

In the comments section, one mother alerted the Paris in Love star that Phoenix’s life jacket was on backwards.

“Oops! Thank you! I never let him out of my arms, [I] thought it was backwards too,” Hilton explained. “I said that to the person who I bought it from and they said it was on right. But thank you so much for letting me know.”
