Christian Lee Hutson has shared a new track, ‘Age Difference’.
It’s the third to come from his Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst-produced second album ‘Quitters’, which is set to land on 1st April via ANTI-.
The track comes alongside an animated video from Nick Slye, who explains: “1,100+ individual pencil drawings make up this five minute hand drawn dream. Christian’s style of lyricism and melody in “Age Difference” lend themselves to vivid lucid dream-like imagery and create the euphoric feeling of falling fast asleep while listening to your favorite album, waking in a haze only remembering bits and pieces trying to decipher what was real and what was fantasy.”
“When we made [debut album] ‘Beginners’ the aim was to make simple digital recordings of how I would play the songs in the room,” Hutson explains. “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’. 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.”
