[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Carole King[/lastfm] has written some of the biggest and memorable hits of the ’70s, and now this prolific songwriter is taking her writing in a somewhat different direction to pen her personal memoir. King’s life story will all be put down on paper in her upcoming memoir, A Natural Woman this April.

King’s memoir will take readers on a journey from her modest beginnings in Brooklyn to becoming one of the most talented and sought-after performers in music.

King details her marriage to former husband and songwriting partner Gerry Goffin, whom she wrote some of her most acclaimed songs with, as well as her biggest achievements in her career. She talks about her most successful album, Tapestry, which included the memorable hits “It’s Too Late/I Feel The Earth Move” and won the Grammy for Album of the Year in 1972.

Aside from her career, King also writes about her experiences as a mother of four, and includes personal photos from her childhood, her family and friends, and a behind-the-scenes look during her live performances over the years.

King’s memoir, A Natural Woman, will be published by Grand Central Publishing on April 10th.
