Patty Griffin Shares New Song, Album Out 3/8

GRAMMY® Award winning artist Patty Griffin has announced today's premiere of "Hourglass," the latest song to be unveiled from her eagerly awaited new album. The acclaimed singer's 10th studio recording and first-ever eponymous LP, PATTY GRIFFIN arrives Friday, March 8 on her own PGM Recordings label via Thirty Tigers. The song's arrival was heralded last week with its premiere via Garden & Gun.


PATTY GRIFFIN is available now for pre-order HERE, with all pre-orders accompanied by instant grat downloads of "Hourglass" and the previously released tracks, "Where I Come From" and the first single, "River," the latter of which premiered last month exclusively via PEOPLE. Both tracks earned instant acclaim, with Rolling Stone Country hailing "River" as one of its "10 Best Country and Americana Songs to Hear Now," noting the single "finds Griffin shining a light on her own determination to keep flowing downstream. Shot through with bluesy vocal runs and Southern soulfulness, this is Griffin at her best: moody, melodic and proudly unbroken." Rolling Stone Country premiered "Where I Come From" earlier this month, declaring it to be "driven by acoustic guitars and Griffin's achingly expressive vocal." In addition, Rolling Stone Country recently applauded PATTY GRIFFIN as "personal and intimate yet wholly universal."




Griffin will celebrate PATTY GRIFFIN with an epic headline tour getting underway next Thursday, February 28 with a sold out show at Los Angeles, CA's Largo at the Coronet. The eagerly awaited tour - much of which is already long sold out - includes visits to historic venues across North America including New Orleans, LA's Tipitina's Uptown (March 26), New York City's Town Hall (April 6), and Nashville, TN's Ryman Auditorium (April 17). European dates follow, including headline shows and festival dates in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands. In addition, Griffin will join Amos Lee as special guest for an upcoming show at Morrison, CO's famed Red Rocks Amphitheatre, set for September 6. Additional dates will be announced soon.

PATTY GRIFFIN represents an extraordinary new chapter for this incomparable singer-songwriter and immediately stands among the most deeply personal recordings of her remarkable two-decade career. The album - which follows 2015's GRAMMY® Award-nominated SERVANT OF LOVE - collects songs written during and in the aftermath of profound personal crisis, several years in which she battled - and ultimately defeated - cancer just as a similar and equally insidious disease metastasized into the American body politic. Yet as always, like very few others, Griffin's power lies in how, as writer Holly Gleason recently observed in Martha's Vineyard Gazette, "her songs seem to freeze life and truth in amber." It's in how Griffin can express the strikingly intimate while never making it about herself, all wrapped in sparse arrangements that breathe an incomparable force and import into her songcraft.
