DON MCLEAN’S ‘AMERICAN PIE’: DOCUMENTARY, STAGE PLAY AND BOOK IN THE WORKS

50 years after he wrote the song, Don McLean is ready to tell the story of “American Pie.”

The singer-songwriter has announced plans for a feature documentary, “The Day The Music Died: The Story Behind Don McLean’s American Pie,” set for release at the end of 2021.

The project will also inform a new stage play that will revolve around McLean’s deep catalog (which includes “Vincent,” “Castles in the Air” and “Wonderful Baby”), as well as a children’s book based on his most famous song.

There’s good reason for all of this activity. Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of the release of “American Pie,” an eight-and-a-half-minute epic that chronicled – somewhat cryptically – the politics, youth culture and defining events of the ’50s and ’60s.

One song that would be considered both, depending on who you talk to, is Madonna’s take on “American Pie” by Don McLean.
