Lana Del Rey‘s father Rob Grant has announced details of his debut album, due to be released this summer.
‘Lost At Sea’ is set to be released on June 9 via Decca Records, and Lana herself – real name Lizzie Grant – will feature on the album’s title track and another song called ‘Hollywood Bowl’.
The album’s first single, ‘Setting Sail On A Distant Horizon’, has been released today along with the album announcement.
Of the song, Grant said: “‘Setting Sail’ is a piano piece that I composed about the happiness and freedom I felt as I would set sail out of Newport, RI in my 25 foot sloop ‘Erewhon’, heading out to the islands of Nantucket and Marthas Vineyard.
“The piano begins slowly and then builds as the sails fill with wind, and the boat begins to heal, leaning into the heavy Atlantic swells. The piano carries you forward as the sloop gains speed, catching more wind, bound for the distant horizon.”
Via UPROXX, a since-deleted blurb about the album from Rough Trade reads: “Rob Grant releases his debut album, Lost At Sea via Decca Records. An accidental recording artist, Grant has never had a lesson on any instrument in his life. No kind of formal musical training at all. He can’t read sheet music. But when he sits down at a piano, something magical happens. Notes flow from him and out pours composition after composition.
“The father of international icon Lana Del Rey, he enlisted an array of talent to contribute to the making of the album. Features and writing credits include his daughter Lana Del Rey, while production credits include Jack Antonoff, Luke Howard, Laura Sisk, and Zach Dawes. Now signed to Decca Records, Rob Grant is set to embark on his next venture as he delves into his newfound career in music.”

Lana herself is set to release new album ‘Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd’ on March 24 – having been pushed back from its original March 10 release – and will feature collaborations with Father John Misty and Tommy Genesis. You can check out the artwork and full tracklist here.
Last week, she shared sprawling new song ‘A&W’, the second single from her forthcoming ninth album.
The track, which runs at seven minutes and 13 seconds long, is co-written and co-produced by Bleachers‘ Jack Antonoff and follows the album’s title track, released back in December.
Ahead of the album’s release, Del Rey revealed that she put only one billboard up to promote her new album, and it happens to be in her ex-boyfriend’s hometown.
