Bob Dylan has six books in the works after a deal inked with publishers Simon and Schuster, according to a report.

The legendary singer will be writing two sequels to his bestselling Chronicles: Volume One published in 2004, Crain’s New York Business reported, citing unnamed insiders.

Another volume will be based on Dylan’s radio show at Sirius XM satellite radio services. It was unclear what the other three books would cover.

Simon and Schuster would not comment on the report.

Chronicles was a bestseller in 2004.

Dylan told Rolling Stone that good reviews of the book “some of ’em almost made me cry – in a good way”.
