Joe Satriani is set to release his first autobiography, titled Strange Beautiful Music: A Musical Memoir.

The book is co-written by Satriani and music biographer Jake Brown and is complied from hours of new firsthand interviews between Brown and Satriani, telling the story of his rise to fame.

The book will also feature a foreword from Queen's Brian May, as well as never-before-seen photos and interviews with Steve Vai, CHICKENFOOT band-mates Sammy Hagar, Michael Anthony, Chad Smith, and others.

Satriani said in a statement, "I'm excited for my fans, through this musical memoir, to get a deeper look inside my creative process in the studio and the stories behind the songs. [...] I look forward to the book hitting shelves next year!"

The book will hit stores in April 2014.
