The 71-year-old musician had shared the news on Twitter. The "no-holds-barred" memoir will be co-written by music journalist Alexis Petridis.

According to The Telegraph, the book, which will be published by Macmillan, is expected to cover John's long career and colourful personal life.

Talking about the upcoming project, the singer said in a statement, "I'm not prone to being a nostalgic person. I'm often accused of only looking forward to my next gig or creative project. It's come as quite a surprise how cathartic I am finding the process of writing my memoirs."

"(I) have had the joyful honour of rubbing shoulders and working with so many of the people at the heart of these changes," he added.

John's unauthorised biography was released in 2007, but this will be the first time that the singer himself has told his story.

He is currently on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road trek, apparently his last tour.

John plans to retire by next year to spend more time with his husband filmmaker David Furnish and children - Zachary (nine) and Elijah (six).
