Christian Lee Hutson Announces May Co-Headlining Tour With Fenne Lily



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; head below to check out all upcoming dates. 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. His forlorn version of “Silent Night” follows a narrator that is lonely during the holidays. The opening lines begin: “Silent night / Over the Rhine  / Standing in the checkout line / Weather report on the radio / 65 percent chance of snow / I wanna call but I don’t / I wanna call but I don’t.” Filmed in a Christmas store, listen and watch the video for his rendition of the track below.

“Silent Night”:

“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,” Hutson explains. “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.”

“Hutson’s reimagining of “Silent Night” is quite moving,” said FLOOD. “Call me a sap, but tears began to peak behind my eyes when he softly repeats, “Making up for lost time” at the end. Light the fire, gather ’round, and grab the tissues.”
