Elton John is inviting fans to get the “truthful” life story. 

The musical icon announced Friday that he will be releasing his first and only biography this year. 

“My life has been one helluva roller coaster ride and I’m now ready to tell you my story, in my own words. My first and only official autobiography will be released October 2019,” he tweeted.

In a short video filmed in his favorite book show he added, “I can’t wait for you to read because it’s the truth and so many books that have been written about me haven’t exactly been truthful. I can’t wait for you to see what I have to say about my life.”

The “Tiny Dancer” singer is currently on his farewell tour and plans to retire from music once the tour finishes in 2021 after more than 300 shows in five continents. 

This year will also see the release of a biopic about John’s life, Rocket Man, starring Taron Egerton as the musical genius.

The yet to be titled memoir is due to be released on October 15.
