Patty Griffin hits theaters this fall behind "American Kid"
Singer/songwriter Patty Griffin has plotted a fall course behind her recent release, "American Kid," and has plans to unveil a lost album entitled "Silver Bell."
The Austin, TX-based performer will kick off the two-week trek with a post-Austin City Limits Festival performance Oct. 10 in Austin before traveling throughout the southern U.S. for 13 theater shows. The current itinerary wraps up Oct. 26 in Dallas.
Griffin released her seventh studio effort, "American Kid," in May via New West Records. The album, which was recorded in Nashville and co-produced by the Grammy winner and Craig Ross, pays tribute to her late father and marks her first album of mostly new material since 2007's "Children Running Through."
Griffin also has plans to reveal the long-awaited "Silver Bells" Oct. 8 via Universal. Recorded in 2000, the collection never surfaced due to the timing and ownership change of her first label, A&M, according to a press release. Fans have heard a few of the tracks, as two were hits for the Dixie Chicks ("Top Of The World" and Truth #2") and Natalie Maines covered the title track on her recent solo debut, "Mother."
