The Legendary Demos traces Carole's journey from her days as an Aldon staff writer in the 1960s to the start of her solo career in the 1970s and contains the original recordings of future standards such as "(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman", "It's Too Late" and "You've Got A Friend."

Carole King presented the Ahmet Ertegun Lifetime Achievement Award for Don Kirshner at the 27th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, on April 14, 2012.

Don Kirshner was a music-industry impresario like no other. His various roles included music publisher, music director, record-company executive and TV producer and host. Kirshner protégé Neil Diamond declared, “The music business never had a better supporter.”

We are very pleased to announce that Grand Central Publishing, an imprint of Hachette Book Group, has published Carole's memoir, A Natural Woman, and released it April 10, 2012.

Deb Futter, VP and Editor-in-Chief, Hardcovers Division, acquired world rights from Joy Harris of the Joy Harris Literary Agency, Inc. Futter said, "Carole King is one of the most beloved, iconic singer-songwriters of our time. It will be a thrill to bring her life's journey to her devoted following who have waited for so long to read her story in prose."
