Elton John has taken to his social media platforms to announce his long-awaited memoir will be published this coming October. Elton posted, “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.” Elton co-wrote the still-untitled tome with music journalist Alexis Petridis.

Back in 2016, Elton spoke about the memoir to Rolling Stone, explaining, “I’m not prone to being a nostalgic person. I’m often accused of only looking forward to my next gig or creative project. It’s come as quite a surprise how cathartic I am finding the process of writing my memoirs. As I look back, I realize what a crazy life I have had the extreme privilege of living. I have grown up in a period of extraordinary change in our world — and have had the joyful honor of rubbing shoulders and working with so many of the people at the heart of these changes.”
