Singer, songwriter and pianist extraordinaire Alicia Keys took to social media on Thursday morning to share the news that her debut memoir will arrive this fall. Titled, More Myself, Keys’ autobiography will arrive on Nov. 5 through Oprah Winfrey’s recently-launched An Oprah Book imprint.
The 320-page book will look to tell the life and career journey of the 15-time Grammy winner from her childhood growing up in New York City, her career breakthrough with the release of her hit debut album at the age of just 20, and the stories and memories she’s collected from nearly two decades as one of pop music’s most talented songwriters and performers. According to the book’s pre-order page on Amazon, More Myself is presented as a part autobiography, part narrative documentary, as Keys’ story is will be revealed through her own candid recounting, in addition to vivid recollections from those who have been there alongside her. The book was co-written alongside Michelle Buford.
More Myself will also act as the first release on Winfrey’s new book imprint. Winfrey shared her own thoughts on who Keys has been to her in the years in which the two talented women and known one another.
“I could feel the power of Alicia’s presence even before she belted out the first soulful notes of the lyrics that made her famous—'I keep on fallin’ in and out of love with you,’” Winfrey praised about the singer. She went on to say that Keys was poised to be a star early on and to give her much due credit for how she's handled her career stating that she "has navigated the spotlight and pressures of fame while retaining a humble and beautiful spirit. I am honored she chose to share her personal story through my imprint.”
Keys even shared a video to her YouTube on Wednesday of the two women sharing a celebratory moment over lunch, where Keys gave fans the first look at the cover of her forthcoming book. Fans can watch the entire moment of the two rejoicing over Keys’ new book in the video above.
Keys recently hosted this year’s Grammy Awards, a ceremony which she knows very well from years spent receiving said awards throughout her own career. On Thursday, Keys, along with Backstreet Boys, Garth Brooks, Halsey, John Legend and more will take part in the iHeartRadio Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.
