The unfinished memoir Prince was working on before he tragically died three years ago will be released on Oct. 29, RadarOnline.com has learned.
The 288-book will contain, in part, the 50 pages of the manuscript Prince had written, rare photography, portions of scrapbooks and other exclusive material.
″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 fame that would come to define him,” Random House announced in a statement.
“The book will span from Prince’s childhood to his early years as a musician to the cusp of international stardom, using Prince’s own writings, a scrapbook of his personal photos, and the original handwritten lyric sheets for many of his most iconic songs, which he kept at Paisley Park,” continued the publisher. “The book depicts Prince’s evolution through deeply revealing, never-before-shared images and memories and culminates with his original handwritten treatment for his masterwork, ‘Purple Rain.’”
The book will also cover the iconic musician’s last days, “a time when Prince was thinking deeply about how to reveal more of himself and his ideas to the world.”
As Radar reported, Prince passed away at age 57 after taking a fatal overdose of the powerful opioid fentanyl on Apr. 21, 2016.
