Rob Grant in full He embraces his moniker “nepo daddy” in his latest single. On Thursday, Lana Del Rey joined her dad on the release of “Lost at Sea,” the title track from his debut album, next Friday.
“Lost At Sea is a very emotional and ethereal song. It combines the beautiful vocals of Lana Del Rey woven into a hypnotic piano composition,” he said in a press release. “Lana’s voice is haunting and powerful. It moves like a ghost through the song like a fog over the ocean.”
He continued, “The song carries a deep message of hope for all of us who feel lost and disconnected in today’s world.” “Lost At Sea is the reason I made my album: to share music that can bring some peace and quiet to a very restless world.”
Grant co-wrote the song alongside Del Rey, featuring the Budapest Arts Orchestra. This is the fifth track that Grant has released lost at sea LP, after dropping songs like “The Mermaid’s Lullaby” and “Deep Ocean Swells”. On the album, Del Rey also appeared at the ‘Hollywood Bowl’.
Grant will release the music video for “Lost at Sea” with Del Rey on June 6, which features several of the Grants’ family and friends and never-before-seen photos of Del Rey and her siblings.
Of the visual, he said, “It was an extraordinary experience shooting aboard a 55-foot Catch in the Pacific Ocean in rough seas and high winds.” “The final video is deeply personal and peppered with rare family footage of the Grant family growing up.”
“When the editor who worked on the Lost At Sea video first heard the song and saw these images, she later told us she couldn’t stop crying. I know it had the same effect on me.”
Grant announced his album back in February with a press release that described him as an “accidental musician” who “has never had a lesson on any instrument in his life.”
“He cannot read sheet music. But when he sits at the piano, the notes flow out of him. The melodies come uninhibited,” the statement reads. “He could play for hours. Emotion overwhelms thought, pouring composition after composition.”
Hours before the announcement, Del Rey joked on Instagram about his dad’s upcoming music. “Either this is the beginning of something beautiful or it will doom us all,” she wrote. “May the force be with each and every one of us. I mean let’s be real—he was always the star.”
