Rob Grant, the father of GRAMMY-nominated musician Lana Del Rey, is dropping an album entitled Lost at Sea.
Set to drop on June 9, Lost at Sea will mark Grantâ€™s debut album and stemmed from his and Del Reyâ€™s 2021 collaboration â€œSweet Carolina,â€ which appeared on the latterâ€™s Blue Bannisters. In a recent interview with GQ, it was revealed that Grant asked his daughterâ€™s producers to record him playing the piano while waiting for her to arrive at the studio, and Del Reyâ€™s manager Ben Mawson was a fan of what he heard. He shopped it around before ending up at Decca Records, while producer Jack Antonoff and Luke Howard aided Grant to â€œshape his songsâ€ and create individual tracks.
He also opened up about making music with his daughter, sharing that she would join him when he played her old piano while crashing at her house. Although he wasnâ€™t classically trained, this led to the creation of a few songs. â€œSheâ€™ll start singing and the songs will come together magically, but in a very beautiful, organic, intuitive way. Thereâ€™s no planning,â€ he explained. â€œItâ€™s so cool to create music with my daughter,â€ he continued. â€œBecause we really are very simpatico.â€
