God and the FBI, provisionally titled In Dog Years I’m Dead, is the 17th studio album by American singer/songwriter Janis Ian, originally released in 2000 by Windham Hill Records. The album’s ultimate title, and the theme of its opening title song, dates from a decade before its release when Ian requested that the FBI files of her parents, who were passionate black civil rights activists, be released to her.
