In the caption, he wrote that he is "thrilled" to announce that his debut album will be released on June 9, and will be available to preorder on Vinyl and CD. He added that he has signed a few copies and that he is looking forward to an interesting year ahead.

The album will be released under Decca Records and Rob stated that Setting Sail on a Distant Horizon will be based on his experience of when he went to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts. He said:

"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."

Rob shared another post featuring a black-and-white picture along with the title of the album written in red color.

According to a press release for the album, Rob Grant is not trained in any musical instrument but he is a flawless artist when he plays piano.
