Patty Griffin On World Cafe

Patty Griffin.
Patty Griffin.

Setting sun, wind and waves and hills — these are all elements of the lyrics on Patty Griffin's new album, Servant Of Love. She says those references come from noticing the spiritual interconnection between nature and humans, which she says makes it harder to be cynical. The songs on Servant of Love, her ninth studio album, are also love songs and songs of strength that give a glimpse into Griffin's state of mind since her breakup with longtime partner Robert Plant.

Griffin has been recording for more than 20 years, creating music that's ranged from full-on rock to folk and gospel. She has also had her songs recorded by others, including the Dixie Chicks and her good friend Emmylou Harris. Today, Griffin joins World Cafe from KUTX in her adopted hometown of Austin, Texas.
