In an introductory video, Lorde explains that why it was important for her to return to the historic studio where she recorded her album. "I don't really do acoustic sessions or anything, but with this record, it had roots in acoustic instruments, in live musicianship," she said. "I felt like the songs deserved to be pulled apart in certain ways."
