Nepo daddy Rob Grant has announced his debut album, Lost at Sea, out June 9th via Decca Records. As a preview, the self-described “accidental recording artist” and father of Lana Del Rey has shared the first single, “Setting Sail on a Distant Horizon.”
Lost at Sea features two appearances from Del Rey (born Elizabeth Grant) as well as production from Jack Antonoff, Zach Dawes (Brian Wilson, Del Rey), and Laura Sisk, a Grammy-winning sound engineer who’s worked with the likes of Taylor Swift, Lorde, and P!NK.
Pre-orders for Lost at Sea are ongoing. See the artwork and tracklist below.
“Setting Sail on a Distant Horizon” is a piano instrumental inspired by “the happiness and freedom” Grant has felt while setting sail to Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard from Newport, Rhode Island in his 25-foot sloop Erewhon.
“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,” Grant explained in a statement. “The piano carries you forward as the sloop gains speed, catching more wind, bound for the distant horizon.” Listen to the track below.
Lost at Sea will be released several weeks after Del Rey’s next album, Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd, which arrives on March 24th. Thus far, we’ve heard the seven-minute epic “A&W,” which was named Song of the Week. This summer, Del Rey will co-headline Brazil’s MITA Music Festival.
