Lana del Rey co-produced the single with Laura Sisk, Zach Dawes and Jack Antonoff.
Lana Del Rey’s father, Rob Grant, releases his debut solo album, Lost at Sea today - featuring his daughter on 'Hollywood Bowl'.
The sixth preview from the record is another collaboration with his daughter, produced by Lana, Laura Sisk, Zach Dawes, and frequent collaborator Jack Antonoff.
Del Rey opens “Hollywood Bowl” by singing, “I know I’m not Joni Mitchell, but I’ve got a dad who plays like Billy Joel,” referencing her father’s work as a self-trained pianist. "I know I can't see the whole picture / But I like to dream about my days of gold..."
Del Rey reflects on performing twice at the Hollywood Bowl, her age, and all the “stories I’ve already sold.”
“Why wait for Heavеn when I can have Heavеn right here like I’m told?/Oh, just like I’m told,” she sings.
Before 'Hollywood Bowl,' Rob Grant had shared Lost at Sea’s title track, as well as 'Setting Sail on a Distant Horizon', 'The Poetry of Wind and Waves,' 'The Mermaids Lullaby,' and 'Deep Ocean Swells.'
“Lost At Sea is a deeply emotional and ethereal song. It combines the beautiful vocals of Lana Del Rey woven into a hypnotic piano composition,” Rob Grant said in a press release at the time of the single's release. “Lana’s voice is haunting and powerful. It moves ghostlike like through the song like mist over the ocean.”
“The song has a deep message of hope for all of us who feel lost and disconnected in today’s world,” he continued. “‘Lost At Sea’ is the reason I made my album: to share music that can bring some peace and calm to a very anxious world.”
Lana Del Rey recently released her ninth studio album in March, titled Did You Know That There's a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd.
