Joni Mitchell to release a handwritten lyrics book in celebration of her 75th birthday

Book 10/10/2019

For the first time ever, Joni Mitchell has announced that she will release a book of handwritten lyrics that she originally crafted for her close friends in 1971.

Due to arrive in stores this 22nd October, Morning Glory on the Vine: Early Songs and Drawings is available for pre-order via this link.

In 1971, while her Blue album continued to flourish, Mitchell spent some time to craft a hundred copies of the book as a holiday present to her closest friends. She handwrote a selection of her own lyrics and poems and decorated it with more than 30 original paintings and watercolours.

To celebrate her 75th birthday, Mitchell has decided to release faithfully reproduced facsimile version of this special book to the public for the very first time.
