Fans who continue to honor the legacy of Prince will rejoice in knowing that he left something personal for them to cherish his life and memory.
Random House confirmed that The Beautiful Ones, a memoir the musical genius was working on at the time of his death in 2016, will be released October 29.
Deadline reports that the 288-page tome will combine Princes’s unfinished manuscript with rare photos, scrapbooks and lyrics.
Initially announced before his death, the memoir is an exclusive partnership with the Prince Estate and will feature an introduction by New Yorker magazine writer Dan Piepenbring, whom Prince had chosen as a collaborator.
The publisher announced Monday that the book will be broken down into four parts, starting with Prince describing his life as “a kid absorbing the world around him and then creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and fame that would come to define him.”
Spanning his childhood to his early years as a musician to the brink of international stardom, The Beautiful Ones will also use Prince’s original handwritten lyric sheets for many of his most iconic songs, which he kept at his home, Paisley Park in Minnesota.
The hardcover edition of The Beautiful Ones will retail at $30.Share :
