However, he asked for forgiveness and Lorde said “we’ll get there.” the pair talked about how New Zealand is handling the COVID-19 pandemic.

Lorde told Colbert that she spent most of quarantine in New Zealand, except for a stint in New York to finish her forthcoming album. Colbert wasn’t allowed to share her album cover art with his live audience. Lorde talking about the album cover said:

My friend just took it. It was just me jumping over a friend on a beach. Perhaps it’s a little hardcore, it was so joyful to me, it felt innocent and playful and a little bit feral and sexy. You’ve gotta do it while you’ve got it.
