(AP) Juanes (WAH'-nehs) has more to say than will fit in a hit song.


The Colombian singer announced Thursday that his first memoir will be released April 2 in English and Spanish. Its titles are Chasing the Sun and Persiguiendo el sol, and they'll be released on Celebra, a division of Penguin Group (USA).


A news release said the book will feature photos and personally penned intimate details about his life. It will also include stories about the effects of witnessing corruption and violence in Medellin, Colombia, where Juanes grew up, as well as the regret and remorse surrounding his father's death.


Juanes is married with three children.


He is a Grammy Award winner and has multiple Latin Grammys, including last year's album of the year for Juanes: MTV Unplugged.
