Prince biography set for July

Unsurprisingly, a biography of Prince will be published in July.

The book, written by UK music journalist Mick Wall, is described as a “shining tribute” to the “musical legend”.

Prince: Purple Reign will document the life of the iconic composer, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Coverage ranges from his “traumatic” childhood and “demonic pursuit of music as a means of escape”, to his rise to superstardom, professional rivalries and marriages  “shrouded in tragedy”.

It also explores the historical, cultural and personal backdrop behind the man.

Wall is described as “a lifelong Prince fan” and one of the first UK journalists to ever write about him in a story that put Prince on the cover of Kerrang! magazine in 1984.

Prince: Purple Rain will be published on July 28.
