Elton John has reportedly signed on to pen a new book about the fight against AIDS. The volume, titled Love Is the Cure will be published by Stodder and Houghton and proceeds from its sales will fund the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
According to RollingStone.com, the book will be released in July to coincide with the international AIDS conference in Washington, D.C.
“This is a disease that must be cured not by a miraculous vaccine, but by changing hearts and minds,” John said in a statement. “Why are we not doing more? This is a question I have thought deeply about, and wish to answer – and to help change – by writing this book.”
An audio version of the book, read by the “Rocket Man,” will also be released.
