Ward, Kacey Musgraves and other members of the Beach Boys. However, Frank Ocean and Lana Del Rey were also supposed to contribute but they no longer have songs on the record.
In a recent interview with Vulture, Brian Wilson explained what happened to their tracks. He said of Lana Del Rey that she cancelled on him.
There are a number of younger artists on No Pier Pressure, including She & Him, fun., and Sebu from Capital Cities, but Lana Del Rey and Frank Ocean were also supposed to contribute. What happened to their tracks?
Well, Frank Ocean didn’t want to do the song. He wanted to do rap, so we canceled him. Lana Del Rey, uh, she just canceled out on us.
