According to her publisher, Simon and Schuster, the book is an intimate dive into her life from "the touching account of her birth, battling bouts of missing home and many incredible self-discoveries along the way."
In anticipation of its May 14 release, Delta shared an expert from the book's introduction on her Instagram, and it reveals a very raw and emotional insight into her life.
"Dreams don't have an expiry date and that's been a really important lesson for me. That's why it's such a prominent theme on the album," the excerpt began.
The 36-year-old went on to reflect on the highs and lows of her early 20s.
"When you're in your twenties, your early twenties in particular, there's a mixture of invincibility and excitement as you embark on adulthood, but there's an innocence underlying it all, too," Delta penned.
"What I wanted to portray through this record is the view from the next level; from the perspective of having lived it and breathed it."
