Paul McCartney is no ordinary musician, so it’s fitting that his autobiography won’t be the everyday type, either.
The former Beatle announced today that he’ll publish The Lyrics — described as “a self-portrait in 154 songs” — on November 2.
Pulitzer prize-winning Irish poet Paul Muldoon edited the work, which is based on conversations McCartney had with him in addition to being inspired by the songs he wrote throughout his life, reports the Guardian.
In addition to commentary on the songs (such as what was happening in his life at the time they were written and how he now feels about them), McCartney will include various material from his personal archives in the two-volume, 900-plus-page work.
