"The Lyrics: 1956 to the Present" will be published Nov. 2, according to a joint statement Wednesday in the British writer Allen Lane and out of Liveright in America.
McCartney, 78, will follow his life during 154 tunes, from his teens and early venture with fellow Beatle John Lennon to his solo work within the previous half century.
"More times than I could count, I have been asked if I'd write an autobiography, but the period hasn't been correct," McCartney said in a statement.
"The 1 thing I have always managed to perform, whether in the home or on the street, would be to compose new tunes. I am aware that a few folks, if they get into a certain age, just like to attend a journal to remember daily events in the past, however I haven't any such laptops. What I do have are my tunes, hundreds of these, which I have learned function much the exact same intent. And these tunes span my whole life."
Financial conditions for"The Lyrics," that includes a list price of $100, weren't disclosed. Publishers have long searched a McCartney memoir, although he's spoken frequently about the past, and it has engaged in these endeavors since Barry Miles' biography"Paul McCartney: Many Years From Today," along with also the 1990s documentary and book"The Beatles Anthology."
Based on McCartney's publishers, his tunes will be organized alphabetically, and will comprise McCartney's opinions on where and when they had been written and what prompted them. The U.S. variant of this publication is going to probably be broken into two amounts, included within one box.
"Presented for this really is really a treasure trove of material out of McCartney's individual archive -- pictures, letters, photos -- not seen before, making this a distinctive visual record of one of the best songwriters of all time," based on Wednesday's statement.
McCartney has frequently received more acclaim because of his melodies than due to his lyrics, but he's written a number of the most quoted tunes lately, such as"Let It Be,""Hey Jude" and"Eleanor Rigby." Muldoon explained in an announcement that their conversations lately"affirm a notion where we had but suspected -- Paul McCartney is a significant literary figure that attracts, and expands, the long tradition of poetry in English."
Muldoon is famous for these poetry collections as"Moy Sand and Gravel" and"Horse Latitudes," and has a background in audio. He mentioned McCartney at a poem,"Sideman":
"I will be McCartney for a Lennon/ Lenin for your Marx/ Jerry for your Ben &Lewis for your Clark"
