''The track had originated in the writing sessions for the 'Paradise' EP. I wrote a different song, but when Baz Luhrmann heard it, he asked me if I could I write a memory cue for Daisy. So I sang him a chorus of 'Young and Beautiful' that I had already — just a chorus — and he thought that'd be good for her. I wrote the whole thing after I watched her garden scenes." - Lana Del Rey
"I was blessed with this beautiful, if you like, kind of innocent but slightly dark song that Rick Nowels and Lana Del Rey had come up with. Lana was a bit nervous at first, but she just sat down and she sang, I directed her, Rick Nowels was there; I wanted her to improvise. We used those and these were textures, vocal textures… There's something wonderful about the level of collaboration that can happen in music." - Baz Luhrmann
