Taylor Swift has revealed plans to re-record her first six albums after Scooter Braun purchased her music catalogue.
The You Need To Calm Down singer was interviewed by Tracy Smith on CBS Sunday Morning when discussions about her Braun-purchased catalogue were raised.
When Tracy asked if Taylor would re-record her first six albums in order to gain control of the masters, she simply replied, “Yeah, absolutely.”
Prior to her upcoming album Lover, dropping August 23, 2019, Scooter made a $300 million deal with Big Machine Label Group founder Scott Borchetta, essentially giving Braun’s company the masters to all her songs, minus her upcoming album.
She has called the deal “worst-case scenario,” and has publicly vented about the purchase made and the fact she allegedly wasn’t offered the right to purchase the masters.
Ithaca Holdings, an investment company owned by Scooter, bought the rights to the masters; with Taylor calling him shady but Braun has support from Demi Lovato and Justin Bieber on social media — the question is, should Swift re-record her previous six albums?
