Ten-time Grammy winner Kanye West will bring highlights from his Glow in the Dark tour to bookshelves via an upcoming book. West is teaming up with New York publisher Rizzoli to release Kanye West: Glow in the Dark.
“Kanye West has turned his talents as pop artist to books,” Charlies Miers, VP and publisher at Rizzoli said via a written statement. “With a CD that includes ‘Star Wars’-like symphonics from the show as well as interview with Spike Jonze, it is not only a memento of one of the most successful musical performances of the year, it is an experience all its own.”
Aside from leaked videos from various news sources, bloggers and West himself, the book will provide a behind the scenes look at the tour. During the tour, fans were banned from bringing cameras to capture images from West’s Star Wars-inspired sets.
“This is the only and official record of one of the most highly anticipated tours of the year,” adds Miers. “Including a USB drive of previously unreleased music, the book is both a memento of the tour and an object conceived by the artist himself-entirely collectible on its own.”
Glow in the Dark will be released in September, and it will likely be available in books stores in October. The book retails for $50. West has previously co-authored Raising Kanye: Life Lessons from the Mother of a Hip-Hop Superstar with his late mother, Dr. Donda West, and Thank You and You’re Welcome with J. Sakiya Sandifer.
