Dovrebbe intitolarsi “The Beautiful Ones” e la pubblicazione è in programma per il prossimo anno. Stiamo parlando della biografia ufficiale di Prince che, secondo le prime dichiarazioni rilasciate ieri in occasione di un evento a New York, dovrebbero narrare la sua vita dai suoi primi ricordi sino agli inizi del 2007. Speriamo solo in due cose: che non succeda come per tanti album o dvd annunciati e mai distribuiti e che ci sia una corretta traduzione in italiano!
Prince Announces Memoir
The Purple One’s first original book is scheduled for release autumn 2017
by Matthew Strauss on pitchfork.com
Prince has announced that he is writing a memoir. The book is scheduled for release in fall 2017 via Spiegel & Grau (a Random House imprint). It will be Prince’s first original book. It’s described as “an unconventional and poetic journey through his life and creative work – from the family that shaped him and the people, places, and ideas that fired his creative imagination, to the stories behind the music that changed the world,” in a press release. Update (3/18, 9:18 p.m.): Tonight at a press conference in New York, Prince announced the title of his memoir will be The Beautiful Ones (which is also the name of a Purple Raintrack). He said it will span from his first memory to when he played the Super Bowl XLI halftime show in 2007.
Also in the press release, Spiegel & Grau Executive Editor Chris Jackson said:
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. 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.
Prince will certainly have stories to tell in his memoir. We sure hope his story about the time he replaced a ?uestlove DJ set with a DVD showing of Finding Nemo is in there.
Yesterday, a bunch of Prince goodies (like his engagement ring, rare recordings, and more) were put up for auction. He released two albums last year: HITNRUN Phase One and HITNRUN Phase Two.

Un pensiero su “Prince ha pronta la sua biografia ufficiale”
Non vedo l’ora di poter leggere la sua autobiografia, spero che sia seguito da un co-autore valido e che sappia dare ai suoi ricordi ed ai suoi testi una forma narrativa magari più convenzionale ma sicuramente fruibile. Ho adorato l’autobiografia di miles davis e allo stesso modo mi auguro che quello sia il livello a cui il nostro aspira.
