As the countdown to the release of the project — which is scheduled for June 16 — continued, the artist offered fans a set of clips that provide several behind-the-scenes glimpses of the project. It starts with a look at an early version of “Sober,” in an L.A. studio Lorde worked in with executive producer Jack Antonoff.

She gives a virtual shout out to album engineer Laura Sisk, who she says “put thousands of late night hours in over 18 months.”

Some late night piano vibes made the social media storm, from a night at New York’s iconic Electric Lady Studios in December.

A slightly too-hyped video features Jack being silly and an anti-climatic reveal.

Melancholy sets in as the final night recording Melodrama comes to a close with the musicians saying goodbye.

Finally, a screenshot of a funny text message conversation between the artist and her producer shows Lorde remembering being cooped up and doing nothing but working on “a bunch of lyrics that needed finishing” when Antonoff encouraged her to keep at it, saying, “happiness is for tourists write you little f—–.”
