If anyone can top the wonders to be found within One Thousand and One Nights in only a fraction of the time, surely it's Prince.
The Purple One will be allowing a rare glimpse into the inner sanctum via 21 Nights, a "photographic essay" offering a look at the "life, lyrics and mystique of one of the most notable and prolific performers of our time," according to publisher Atria Books.
In addition to 124 never-before-seen photos chronicling Prince's 21 consecutive sold-out shows at London's O2 Arena last year, the package will also include Indigo Nights, a compilation album culled from the intimate, small-venue gigs the artist played after-hours.
“We are tremendously honored and excited by this opportunity to present this lyrical and visually rich book from Prince that captures the spirit and voluptuous sound of his brilliant [London run],” publisher Judith Curr said in a statement. “21 Nights is an innovative multimedia book project created by a musical visionary and uncompromising artist, an invitation to experience a side Prince has not revealed until now.”
The memoir will be ready to rock your coffee table this fall.
