Prince book set to come out this fall

'21 Nights' is the Purple One's first book

Prince is set to become an author with the release of his very first book, scheduled to be published this fall.

The Purple One has put together ’21 Nights’, a photographic essay incorporating images, lyrics and poetry based on his 21-night residency at the O2 Arena in London last year.

According to Atria books, it offers “a rare glimpse into the life, lyrics, and mystique” of Prince and will feature “124 full-colour sumptuous, never-before-published images by celebrated photographer Randee St. Nicholas.”

In addition to the new lyrics, photos and poetry that make up the tome, an excusive CD entitled ‘Indigo Nights’ will also be included with the book.

As previously reported, Prince recently played a storming set including a cover of Radiohead’s ‘Creep’ at Coachella during which he exceeded the festival’s curfew by an entire hour.
