Prince’s Memoir ‘The Beautiful Ones’ Set For Release
Prince may have passed away in 2016, but this isn’t the last we’ve heard of the iconic musician. Prince left a lot of things behind when he passed away, including a vault of unreleased music and an unfinished draft of his memoir, The Beautiful Ones, which is expected to be publish this fall.
Random House will publish The Beautiful Ones, the unfinished memoir with never-before-seen photos, the original handwritten lyrics of his songs and an introduction by Dan Piepenbring, whom Prince had chosen as his collaborator.
The book is a deeply personal account about how Prince Roger Nelson became the famous musician we know today. The book will chronicle his youth growing up in Minneapolis, to how he became Prince, and the life that resulted from all that fame.
“It’s a genuinely moving and energizing literary work, full of Prince’s ideas and vision, his voice and image,” said the book’s editor, Chris Jackson. “It’s a treasure not just for Prince fans but for anyone who wants to see one of our greatest creative artists and original minds at work on his greatest creation: himself.”
