Neil Young is to publish a second memoir, following 2012’s Waging Heavy Peace.

According to Billboard , the new book will focus on Young’s passion for cars, while also featuring stories about his life in music.

Blue Rider, an imprint of Penguin Random House, told The Associated Press on Monday that the new book is scheduled for the autumn and is currently untitled.

New Rider says the second memoir is an “eclectic amalgam” that also will include artwork by Young and his thoughts on politics and the environment.

Meanwhile, Young is expected to unveil his high-resolution digital music-download service Pono at South By South West festival on Tuesday, March 11. Graham Nash has claimed that the first release on Pono will be the long-delayed CSNY 1974 tour box set.

Young is also to release A Letter Home , an album of cover versions to be released on Jack White‘s Third Man label. Young has said that the record will be released in March and the record is described as: “An unheard collection of rediscovered songs from the past recorded on ancient electro mechanical technology captures and unleashes the essence of something that could have been gone forever…”.

Young is also due to play two solo acoustic shows in Los Angeles in March and a number of European dates with Crazy Horse over the summer. You can read the dates here.
