Prince was working on the book at the time of his death. The publisher says it will combine his unfinished manuscripts with rare photos, scrapbooks and lyrics.

The Beautiful Ones is the deeply personal account of how Prince Rogers Nelson became the Prince we know: the real-time story of a kid absorbing the world around him and creating a persona, an artistic vision, and a life, before the hits and the fame that would come to define him,” Random House said.

Prince died on April 21, 2016 from an accidental drug overdose. He was 57. A film musical featuring Prince songs is also in the works.
