Christian Lee Hutson will embark on a co-headlining tour with Fenne Lily this May for a month-long run of shows that span nationwide. Last year Hutson sold out his first-ever headlining shows in New York, Los Angeles and London, followed by his first-ever headlining tour that ran from July to August. His latest album Quitters was released on April 1 and produced by Conor Oberst and Phoebe Bridgers; Hutson was also able to play these songs supporting Bridgers and Bright Eyes this past spring and in late August.

This past December Hutson released a re-worked cover of “Silent Night.” Known for his witty lyricism and development of characters, it only feels natural that Hutson would not only cover a classic Christmas song but adjust its point of view to that of one of his typically down-on-their-luck protagonists. Filmed in a Christmas store, listen and watch the video for his rendition of the track below.

Hutson explains:

“Some of my favorite songs are Christmas songs but they’re often about Jesus being born or old men riding on donkeys to give presents to a baby king, Lyrically, they’re all pretty scary and I imagine this baby holding humanity hostage. So, I wrote my own version of one of my favorites about spending Christmas in Ohio.”
