Patty Griffin’s new album is actually a bit old — 13 years, in fact. “Silver Bell” has been an underground favorite of the folk singer’s fans, ever since it was shelved and lost during the major label shuffle back in 2000.
Now “Silver Bell” is getting a proper release on Oct. 8 via Universal, and what is lost is now found: HitFix is giving away a copy of the album plus a lithograph of the album artwork.
