It’s been an awfully eventful 2015 for Grace Jones. It was announced earlier this year that the disco legend and runway maven’s life would be the subject of a forthcoming documentary treatment from the BBC and later this summer, she’ll be gracing the Afropunk stage with some very posh funk styles. But that’s just the tip. Later this year, Jones will be publishing her very first, very appropriately titled memoir I’ll Never Write My Memoirs (based on the opening line from “Art Groupie”) but claims, if she didn’t, someone else would. And who better to chart her meteoric ascent from Jamaican-born starlet into pop iconography than the lady herself? The memoir is slated for a September 29th release with a box-set of her four-to-the-floor phase The Disco Years already on the market in a 4-LP packaging. If you’ve yet to Jones in the flesh, we suggest you make your way to Afropunk, where she’ll be sharing stages along with Lauryn Hill, Thundercat, Lenny Kravitz, Raury, Danny Brown, Suicidal Tendencies and too many more to name in these few hundred words. Hit the link below to cop your stubs and brace yourself for all of the wildness that is sure to jump off the pages come late-September when Grace Jones unleashes I’ll Never Write My Memoirs.
