Elton John announced via Twitter on Friday that he is writing a book about his life, which is set for release in October of 2019.
My life has been one helluva roller coaster ride and I’m now ready to tell you my story, in my own words. My first and only official autobiography will be released October 2019.

The social media post features a video of the 71-year-old Grammy winner in his favorite bookshop in Chelsea, London. “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,” the “Tiny Dancer” singer said. “I can’t wait for you to see what I have to say about my life.”
