In early October, Griffin released the long-awaited "Silver Bell," a 14-track effort recorded in 2000 at Daniel Lanois' New Orleans studio. The album marks her second release of the year, with the first being "American Kid," which surfaced in May via New West Records. That collection, which was recorded in Memphis, TN, serves as a tribute to her late father.
