In the interview, Lorde also got candid about how she feels to be grouped into a collective of Jack's collaborators that many jokingly refer to as his "stable." She said, "I haven't made a Jack Antonoff record… I've made a Lorde record and he's helped me make it and very much deferred to me on production and arrangement… Jack would agree with this. To give him that amount of credit is frankly insulting."
