NEW YORK — The Piano Man will be bringing the news, good and bad, this summer.

HarperCollins announced details Thursday about Billy Joel's "The Book of Joel," coming out June 14. The memoir will take fans on an "emotional ride" from the writing of such favorites as "Just the Way You Are" and "New York State of Mind" to his broken marriage to Christie Brinkley and his struggles with depression and substance abuse.

Joel's editor at HarperCollins, David Hirshey, said in a statement that "there is a lot in this book that he has never revealed before." HarperCollins also released the cover photograph Thursday, a moody close-up of Joel taken in the 1990s.
