Lisa Marie Presley’s memoir, written with her daughter Riley Keogh, will be released in October.

The daughter of Elvis Presley had recorded parts of her autobiography on tapes before she died, allowing her daughter Riley to complete the memoir.

“[Keough] listened as Lisa Marie told story after story about the unconditional love she felt from her father, about being upstairs at Graceland, just the two of them, a sanctuary from the chaos of her life,” a statement from publisher Pan MacMillan revealed. “About her own wild love stories, and her marriages to Michael Jackson and Nicolas Cage. About motherhood and the shattering loss of her son, Riley’s brother Benjamin Keough, to suicide.”

Riley added: “Few people had the opportunity to know who my mom really was, other than being Elvis’ daughter. I was lucky to have had that opportunity and working on preparing her autobiography for publication has been a privilege, albeit a bittersweet one.”

The currently untitled book will be released on October 15. Alongside the print version will be an audiobook read by Riley, that will also include some of Lisa Marie’s recordings.

Lisa Marie died on 12 January 2023, when she was 54. Her death was originally thought to be due to cardiac arrest, but an autopsy showed she died from an intestinal obstruction that constricted blood supply to her digestive tract.

She was the only child of Elvis and Priscilla, and inherited the Graceland estate in 1980. She released three albums, with two of them reaching the Top 10 of the Billboard charts.

She is survived by her mum Priscilla, 78, and daughter Riley, 34. Her son Benjamin took his own life in 2020 at the age of 27.
