Patty Griffin's Lost 'Silver Bell' Album to Be Released in October

Patty Griffin

Patty Griffin's long lost third full length album, "Silver Bell," will finally hit shelves on October 8. "Silver Bell" features fourteen original tracks sung by Griffin, with legendary singer-songwriter Emmylou Harris providing backing vocals on "Truth #2." The album is being mixed by renowned producer Glyn Johns, who has worked with the likes of Bob Dylan, The Beatles and The Clash. The original recording fell victim to A&M Records' drastic ownership transition in 2000.

Although Griffin's initial effort never made it to radio, both "Top of the World" and "Truth #2" became associated with the Dixie Chicks after they were featured on the trio's massively successful "Home" album in 2002. 

"Silver Bell" was recorded in New Orleans in Daniel Lanois' Kingsway Studio as Griffin's first full length since 1998's critically acclaimed "Flaming Red." Since departing from A&M Records, Griffin has continued to create Americana gems, including the "American Kid" LP, which was released by New West Records earlier this year.
