Background[edit | edit source]
The song was originally composed in 1945 as a show tune for the Rodgers and Hammerstein's musical "Carousel". In 1963, the song was covered by British group Gerry and the Pacemakers, where it was then adopted by soccer team Liverpool F.C. for use as their anthem, with the title being used as the team's motto.
On November 3, 2020, Lana shared a video of herself singing the song a capella on Instagram.
The song was officially released on December 4, 2020, as part of the soundtrack for the documentary.
On December 7, 2020, a special vinyl release of the song was made available. Del Rey has stated on her Instagram account that "all proceeds from the sale of the vinyl will go to charity, via the Liverpool FC Foundation."
Regarding Lana's history with Liverpool FC, it is worth mentioning that she has already visited the Stadium at Anfield in 2013, where she wore the team's scarf and answered questions at the club's website.
