Taylor Swift says she plans to re-record her earlier songs
Taylor Swift says she plans to re-record her earlier songs, Taylor Swift wasn’t happy when Scooter Braun purchased the rights to her old songs and now it sounds like she has a plan to do something about it.
Taylor Swift plans to re-record her songs after her catalog was purchased by popular music manager Scooter Braun as part of a $300 million deal.
Swift has a long-running feud with Braun.
“CBS Sunday Morning” previewed some of its pre-taped interview with Swift on Wednesday. The reporter asks Swift if she would consider re-recording her songs in order to own the new versions, and Swift said, “Oh yeah.” When asked if that was the plan, Swift replied with: “Yeah, absolutely.”
Fellow pop star Kelly Clarkson suggested the idea back in June.
In late June, Braun’s Ithaca Holdings announced that it had acquired Big Machine Label Group, which was led by Scott Borchetta and home to Swift’s first six albums, including the Grammy winners for album of the year, 2008’s “Fearless” and 2014’s “1989.”
Swift said last November that she signed with Universal Music Group instead of staying at Big Machine because she knew that re-signing would only result in her not owning her future work.
Braun manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.
