Christian Lee Hutson – ‘Rubberneckers’

Quitters is Christian Lee Hutson’s fourth album and second to be released through Anti, following 2020’s Beginners. Hutson and Bridgers have an ongoing musical partnership, with Hutson co-writing a song on the 2018 Boygenius EP from Bridgers, Lucy Dacus and Julien Baker. He added instrumentation to Bridgers and Oberst’s 2019 collaboration, Better Oblivion Community Center, and co-wrote a couple of the album’s songs.
