NEW YORK (AP) — Music mogul Clive Davis will release an autobiography in February that will include “the excitements, the disappointments and the triumphs” of his career.

The untitled book will be released through Simon & Schuster and will be written with music journalist Anthony DeCurtis. A news release says it will include “never-before-heard tales” about Mr. Davis‘ work with such acts as Whitney Houston, John Lennon, Bruce Springsteen, Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan.

Mr. Davis has helped the careers of many top musicians, from Aretha Franklin to Billy Joel to Alicia Keys. The Harvard Law School graduate founded both Arista and J Records. He’s currently the COO of Sony Music and is working on Miss Franklin’s new album and Houston’s forthcoming greatest-hits set.

The 80-year-old released his first book, “Clive: Inside the Record Business,” in 1975.
