“working with taylor is a full connection to all of the wonder of making music. knowing her and making work with her gives me faith in the ability for people to grow. to actual grow. it has been a one of the most deeply important personal and creative relationships in my life. thank god i met you at that bizarre show in germany all those years ago. i adore you and i adore this album. thank you for listening and believing in what i was doing before i had produced a single record. damn taylor,” he wrote.

“there is a protective layer on the process with her that lets in zero cynicism. zero. songs are sacred and the way they sound have to hold the writing in the right home forever. finding that with her is magic. running forward on every album is magic. thank you for not letting up,” he continued.

“feels almost a shock that this all was even real. sending tracks back and forth. laura recording taylor’s vocals in another room in CA – me patched in from NY. maybe it was conditions that we had to make it under but i’ve never heard taylor sing better in my life / write better. all of it. recorded these songs in just a few takes. most of them full takes and not comped. sending her tracks for august and mirrorball and hearing what she would send back are moments that are mind blowing to me thinking back to the first time we did this on out of the woods — the feeling is the same, heaven. 4 together at this point. jesus taylor. can’t believe i got to type that. love you,” he went on to say.

He also revealed his two favorite songs he’s ever done with Taylor are on this album.

Lena Dunham Recalls What Jack Antonoff Said the Moment She Decided to Move Out

Lena Dunham is describing the moment she moved out of her shared apartment with Jack Antonoff after they broke up.

It started when they bought an apartment together and he went on tour while she decorated. She was going for “decrepit glam,” but Jack was “afraid of dust.”

“He didn’t want to hate it,” Lena told Domino about how he felt when he returned from tour. “He tried not to hate it. But he didn’t like living among the insides of my mind.”

“I felt sick every time I made a design concession or covered up pink with dove gray. Love can only survive so much. At night, I mapped out my dream space in my head,” Lena added.

“The last time I saw that apartment was when we agreed, with love, that someone had to go. ‘You can finally eat in the bed without anyone getting mad at you,’ he said through tears,” Lena added.

After Jack Antonoff and Lena Dunham broke up in 2018, there were rumors that he dated her friend Lorde.
