Unfortunately, before his untimely passing in 2016, Prince signed a book deal for his autobiography. An autobiography that will never be realised. However, with some work already submitted by the singer a memoir is still posisble, and more so than that, it is due out this year.
Before his death Prince was only able to submit 50 handwritten pages before his death, but the memoir is still being released, as reported by Variety. Publishing agent Esther Newberg confirmed, Prince was working with author Dan Piepenbring on the book, which will be released near the end of the year.
What exactly is in the book is up for debate but they did mention it “may include reproductions of Prince’s longhand pages.” When the biography was first announced, it was described by the publishers as “an unconventional and poetic journey through his life and creative work.”
