Prince is writing a memoir to be released next year. “The Beautiful Ones”
Publisher Spiegel & Grau announced Friday it has acquired Prince’s untitled book, which will be released in the fall of 2017.
A press release says in the memoir “Prince will take readers on an unconventional and poetic journey through his life and creative work.” It says the book will include stories about Prince’s music and “the family that shaped him and the people, places, and ideas that fired his creative imagination.”
The 57-year-old Minneapolis-born Prince is one of the most successful musical acts of all-time. He has released four albums in the last 18 months, including two on the Tidal streaming service last year.
