Riverhead Press is set to publish the as-yet-untitled music-centric book. The Wild Flag singer and Sleater-Kinney founder is also working on a visitors guide to "Portlandia" with co-star Fred Armisen.

Comedienne, rocker and blogger Carrie Brownstein has written about the music industry before, but this time it’s personal.

The New York Times reports that the indie-rocker and Portlandia star has signed with Riverhead Press to publish a music-centric memoir.

In February, Brownstein and her other comedic-half, Fred Armisen, announced a parody travel guide Portlandia: A Guide for Visitors, based on their acclaimed IFC show, which they will pen for Grand Central Publishing. The former Sleater-Kinney frontwoman is currently on tour with her new band, Wild Flag.
