The Details About Prince’s Memoir, The Beautiful Ones, Are Finally Here

There were so many more beautiful chapters to Prince, and though his story may have been cut short, it didn’t necessarily mean that it was the end. The legendary musician was working on his own book around the time of his demise, which will finally be releasing this fall, according to The Associated Press. A Prince memoir is on the way!

Titled under the same name as his 1984 single, “The Beautiful Ones,” from blockbuster Purple Rain‘s official movie soundtrack, the 288-page book delves into Prince’s life before the stage lights and fancy mics and even after the curtains closed and chaos arose.

Set to be published by Random House, the non-fiction work will include the “Do Me, Baby” singer’s fifty-page, unfinished manuscript (wrote by hand), dear-to-heart images from his exclusive scrapbook, and handwritten lyrics of his most iconic songs, which he kept stored at his creative sanctuary, Paisley Park.

The autobiography will give its readers an intimate experience, as it documents important parts of Prince’s four-decade-long career. From his childhood in Minneapolis, Minnesota to his early years in music and his rise to global stardom, it’s guaranteed to take fans on an unforgettable journey.

“‘The Beautiful Ones’ is the deeply personal account of how Prince Rogers Nelson became the Prince we know: the real-time story of a kid absorbing the world around him and creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life… before the hits and the game that would come to define him,” Random House told the news outlet.

New York-based writer Dan Piepenbring—who Prince grabbed to collaborate—will also recount Prince’s final days in his introduction, where he describes it as “a time when Prince was thinking deeply about how to reveal more of himself.”

First announced by Prince, himself, at a 2016 concert in New York, The Beautiful Ones is in partnership with the late funk-rocker’s estate and will hit the shelves on October 29th.
