Lorde 'insulted' by 'sexist' claims she's part of producer Jack Antonoff's 'stable' of artists

Lorde has shot down claims she's a member of producer and musical collaborator Jack Antonoff's "stable" as "sexist and insulting". 

The Kiwi singer expressed her disdain for the idea her forthcoming album Solar Power is a "Jack Antonoff record" in an interview with the New York Times. 

"I haven't made a Jack Antonoff record,” she said. 

"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." 

The 'Stoned at the Nail Salon' hitmaker said she found the narrative "retro" and "sexist", insisting she even worked to remove some elements of Antonoff's style from the album. 

"I know that there are certain hallmarks of what Jack does and some of those things I really love and some of them I don't like," she explained.

"And I beat them out of the work that we do together. 

"I say this with so much love and affection, but I feel like we're doing up a house together and he’s like, 'Look at this serviette that I fashioned into the shape of two swans! Look at this set of woven baskets!' And I'm like, 'Great - one per room'." 

Antonoff is the frontman of his own indie pop act, Bleachers, and has also worked with Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, Sia and P!nk. He was the main collaborator on Lorde's 2017 Melodrama.
