Elton John announces a new autobiography

News 12/03/2019

Even with the upcoming 'Rocketman' film, Elton John has surprised fans once again by announcing a new autobiography book.

John has yet to reveal the title and cover for the book but has revealed that it will hit the stores on 15th October this year.

"Here I am in my favorite bookshop, John Sandoe in Chelsea in London," John revealed the news  on Twitter. "And I just wanted to tell you that I have a book coming out, which is my first autobiography. I can't wait for you to read it, because it's the truth, and so many books that have been written about me haven't exactly been truthful. I can't wait for you to see what I have to say about my life."

Available for pre-order now, the book appears to include multiple versions in hardcover, e-book and audiobook. Amazon's listing also notes that the book will be 320 pages long.

"I’m not prone to being a nostalgic person. I’m often accused of only looking forward to my next gig or creative project," Elton says. "It’s come as quite a surprise how cathartic I am finding the process of writing my memoirs. As I look back, I realise what a crazy life I have had the extreme privilege of living."

John is currently on his 'Farewell Yellow Brick Road' tour and will be performing three shows next year in New Zealand.
