Prince announced that he is writing a memoir that is slated for a 2017 release via Spiegel & Grau. His publishers described the memoir as “an unconventional and poetic journey through his life and creative work.”
In a statement, Spiegel & Grau Executive Editor Chris Jackson said:
“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.”
According to Pitchfork, Prince revealed that his memoir’s title would be taken from a Purple Rain song, The Beautiful Ones. His memoir will stretch from the artist’s first memory all the way to his 2007 Super Bowl halftime show performance.
