Here are some suggestions, organized by genre, style, or mood.
Huge and literary: City on Fire by Garth Risk Hallberg
Informative: The Song Machine: Inside the Hit Factory by John Seabrook
This nonfiction expose of the current music industry sounds intriguing.

OK, so it’s not so much focused on her music. I say it still counts.
Pop culture-y: Cornflakes with John Lennon by Robert Hilburn
A music journalist tells true tales. Entertaining.
Gen X: The Exes by Pagan Kennedy
When I read this book eons ago, I remember it making me very happy.
Or you could go with High Fidelity
Literary: A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan
Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction
Quirky chick lit: The Song Reader by Lisa Tucker
I read this pre-blog and liked it lots.

If you kinda like some country music every now and again, give this one a whirl.
Book discussion wonder: Bel Canto by Ann Patchett
One of the most discussable books I’ve ever met
I hope this list sparks some ideas!
