Prince doesn’t let out much about himself. In fact, part of what makes him Prince is his unique level of mystery. Though over the last couple of months, he’s provided a level of intimacy with fans during his Piano & A Microphone tour, telling stories and performing songs from a career-spanning setlist.
According to Rolling Stone, Prince will be publishing a memoir due out in the fall of 2017. Publishers Spiegel & Grau describe the autobiography as “an unconventional and poetic journey through his life and creative work.” From the artist who has ultimate control over sharing his music, we look forward to reading what The Purple One shares in his writing.

The book’s working title is “The Beautiful Ones” and was announced by Prince himself at an event in New York City on Friday night. “This is my first [book]. My brother Dan is helping me with it. He’s a good critic and that’s what I need. He’s not a ‘yes’ man at all and he’s really helping me get through this,” Prince told the audience, according to ABC News. “We’re starting from the beginning from my first memory and hopefully we can go all the way up to the Super Bowl.”

The memoir is said to feature the “people, places and ideas that fired his imagination” and will hopefully give light to the chapters of his life that inspired so many years of timeless music. “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,” said Executive Editor of Spiegel & Grau Chris Jackson. “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.”
It’s an exciting time to be a Prince fan.
