Metamorphosis is the second studio album by American recording artist Hilary Duff. Marketed as her debut album, it was released on August 26, 2003 by Buena Vista and Hollywood Records as a follow up to her holiday album, Santa Claus Lane (2002). According to Duff, the album incorporates elements of pop and rock music, and it represents changes that are specific to her life and that everyone experiences. Duff worked with several producers on the album, mostly notably The Matrix, who were well known at the time for their work with Avril Lavigne. Others who collaborated on the album include Chico Bennett, Matthew Gerrard, John Shanks and his frequent writing partner Kara DioGuardi.

Metamorphosis coincided with other high profile projects in which she was involved in other media. The album received mixed reviews from music critics; some complemented it for being a modern-day bubblegum album, while others considered the album to be a promotional gimmick for the singer, lacking real substance. The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, selling 203,000 copies in its first week, becoming the highest opening week sales figure for a debut album by a female artist in 2003. In following week the album rose to number one on the chart. The album became the eighth best selling album of 2003 in the US, according to Nielsen SoundScan, selling 2.6 million copies in a period of five months. By late 2005, the album had sold five million copies worldwide. For Hollywood Records, Metamorphosis was the label's first high seller in several years, and led to the company's further successful cultivation of new artists and brands using the Disney Channel.

Three singles were released from the album. The lead single, "So Yesterday", was released in July 2003 to mixed reception. The song failed to make much of an impact in the US, peaking in the top fifty. Internationally, it peaked within the top ten of music charts in Australia, Canada, France and the United Kingdom. The album's second single, "Come Clean", released in early 2004, had the same effect. The third and final single from the album, "Little Voice" was only released in Australia. Duff further promoted the album with the Metamorphosis Tour that began in November 2003.

Hilary Duff had always wanted to follow in the footsteps of her elder sister, Haylie. Duff watched her sister rehearsing in 2001, after which she told her mother that she wanted to be involved in singing.[3] During the same time period, she attended a Radio Disney concert where she met Andre Recke, whose client Myra was performing. According to Duff, watching the pop musicians preparing and warming up backstage at the concert made her think, "I want to do this so bad".[4] Recke said he thought Duff, who was popular with preteens at the time because of her role in the popular Disney Channel original series Lizzie McGuire, had "something special ... Sometimes you just have that feeling, that, 'Wow, she's a star.'"[4] After becoming determined to start a music career, Duff resumed her vocal lessons—which she had started before her acting career began—and became one of Recke's clients. "I've always had a big drive", she said. "When I felt like something looked fun or I wanted to accomplish something, I really just go for it ... I didn't really know what it was gonna be like, but I knew I wanted to try it and I knew that I could do it."[5] Duff recorded several songs for Disney soundtrack and compilation albums, and a Christmas album, Santa Claus Lane, in 2002. Her songs "I Can't Wait", "Why Not" and "What Dreams Are Made Of" were hits on Radio Disney, but Recke and executives at Buena Vista Music Group envisioned Metamorphosis as a vehicle by which Duff could reach a more mature audience.

Duff, her mother Susan, and Recke enlisted the songwriting and production team The Matrix—whom Recke had previously hired to write songs for Myra's 2001 eponymous debut album—and songwriter Charlie Midnight, who had contributed to Santa Claus Lane (2002). According to Duff, her mother, Recke and Duff herself worked very hard to get music that she related to and was age-appropriate for her.[4] Duff said that she did not want to make "a really poppy album" because that was not the type of music she listened to.[3] The presence of The Matrix was noted because of their work on Avril Lavigne's highly successful debut album, Let Go (2002), but Duff said that she did not want to emulate other artists: "There are definitely people I respect and I love their music, but there was never really an artist that I said, 'I want to be just like them...' ... I wanted to be like myself".
