The US songwriter’s life story, due for publication in 2020, will also detail her childhood in the deep south
Songwriter Lucinda Williams is to publish a memoir in 2020, detailing her childhood in the American south and her experiences “navigating an unfriendly recording industry”, the New York Times reports.
“I have a lot to say and a big story to tell,” Williams said in a statement. “I want everyone to know what’s behind the songs and to know more about me than what people previously thought they knew. It’s time to tell my truth.” Henry Holt & Co will publish Williams’ memoir in the US. Details of the British publication have yet to be announced.
