Christian Lee Huston has shared the details of his new album, Quitters, which will be released on April 1 via ANTI-. The LP was produced by Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst, and its latest single, ‘Rubberneckers’, features backing vocals from Brigders. Check out the song’s Zoe Donahoe and Adam Sputh-directed video below.
“I made the ‘Rubberneckers’ video with my friends Zoe and Adam, who I worked with on the ‘Lose This Number’ video,” Hutson said in a statement. “The last time I danced was at the eighth grade social and it was mainly just swaying to ‘I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing,’ but I wanted to showcase what a natural, gifted dancer I am.”
Of the album, which follows 2020’s Beginners, he added: “When we made Beginners, the aim was to make simple digital recordings of how I would play the songs in the room. With this record, Phoebe and Conor had an idea that it would be fun to make it to tape. Phoebe is my best friend and making Beginners with her was so comfortable and easy. So I wanted to work with her again.”
“I took a long time with Beginners,” Hutson continued. “I had those songs for 10 years, but these songs came out a lot faster. There was a little bit of insecurity with the lyrics. Having Conor there served the purpose of someone who I really respect as a lyricist and could soothe my anxiety.”
In November of last year, Hutson released the song ‘Strawberry Lemonade’, which landed on our Best New Songs segment.
