Prince in a man of mystery…but not for long.
The elusive musician is prepping to release his memoir titled The Beautiful Ones, detailing everything from his earliest memory to the stories behind some of his most heralded works.
Spiegel & Grau Executive Editor Chris Jackson tells The Hollywood Reporter, “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.”
According to The Wall Street Journal, The Beautiful Ones is written with assistance from collaborator Dan Piepenbring, and is set to be released sometime in the Fall of 2017 via the Random House imprint, Spiegel & Grau.
