Patty Griffin preps first new LP since beating cancer, touring (listen to “River”)

patty griffin

Singer/songwriter Patty Griffin is back with a new self-titled album on March 8 via her own PGM Recordings label via Thirty Tigers. It’s her first since 2015 and her first since being diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago (a battle which she has, happily, won). She made the record primarily at her home in Austin, TX and it features Robert Plant on two songs. The first single “River, which is not one of the songs with Plant, is out now. “It’s one of the last songs I wrote for this record,” Griffin told People. “We recorded it over about a year’s time. I had been spending a lot of time with this song that Leon Russell wrote and Donnie Hathaway recorded in the ’70s called ‘A Song For You.’ I actually covered that song at a show, and I thought it would be great to have my own — which is kind of a high order. There’s something about that particular song that made me feel like it’s an aerial view of a moment in life. The emotion of that song inspired me.” Listen to that below.

Patty will be on tour this spring, and while venues haven’t been announced, dates include an NYC show at Town Hall on April 6. Tickets go on sale Friday, January 18 at 10 AM. Dates and cities are listed, along with album art and tracklist, below.
