Lena Dunham reportedly took home $3.7 million for her book, “Not That Kind Of Girl,” and now it’s her boyfriend Jack Antonoff’s turn in the literary spotlight. The Bleachers and Fun. singer just inked a deal with Simon & Schuster for his upcoming book, “Record Store,” announced this morning.
The book will pay homage to record stores, which are on the verge of dying out much like the corner video store, and will include essays, interviews and photos. Unlike a traditional book, this one will have more of a scrapbook feel.
As you can imagine, being a three-time Grammy winner has put Antonoff in contact with some pretty knowledgeable people — and those he doesn’t already know are pumped to talk with him. The book will include interviews with some industry heavy-hitters as well as some under-the-radar record store heroes.
