Tim Rogers may have shied away from autobiography on his new album An Actor Repairs, but it appears he has been saving stories for his forthcoming memoir: Detours.

The book will be released through publisher Hardie Grant, but doesn’t take the form of a traditional autobiography – sounding closer to Bob Dylan’s disjointed Chronicles in the way he describes it.

“It’s unusual in that… there’s no narrative to the thing,” he tells Rolling Stone. “It’s not about the band or about me, necessarily. It’s just pieces.

“It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. Maddening. The discipline of it. But not being a prose writer previously, I was encouraged to let my freak flag fly. How collaborative it was surprised me. Because it’s all so solitary to a point and then you open it up to [editors]. That’s been the most enjoyable part.”

No release date for Detours has been announced yet, but we’re damn excited!
