Prince to Release a Memoir

Prince to release his first book ever.

It looks like we can expect a memoir from Prince come fall 2017. According to Pitchfork, the book will be titled, The Beautiful Ones and will serve as his first book ever. Prince’s publishers (Spiegel & Grau) says this book is an “unconventional and poetic journey through his life and creative work – from the family that shaped him and the people, places, and ideas that fired his creative imagination, to the stories behind the music that changed the world.” The book will span from his first memory in life to when he played the Super Bowl XLI show in 2007.

Spiegel & Grau Executive Editor Chris Jackson released a statement saying,

Prince is a towering figure in global culture and his music has been the soundtrack for untold numbers of people—including me—for more than a generation; his creative genius has provided the musical landscape of our lives. Millions of words have been written about Prince—books and articles, essays and criticism—but we’re thrilled to be publishing Prince’s powerful reflections on his own life in his own incandescently vivid, witty, and poetic voice.

Stay tuned.
