Taylor Swift wants to re-record her old hits after ownership row

For her new album ‘Lover,’ Taylor Swift has embraced streaming. But is it too late

It's all affirmative, with apparently Swift saying "Yeah, absolutely" when Smith asks if that's her plan.

The wide-ranging interview on CBS Sunday Morning with Swift will air August 25 at 9 a.m. ET.

Taylor Swift says she "absolutely" plans to re-record the first six albums of her career, which are owned by Big Machine Label Group and its new owner, Scooter Braun.

She said she was "sad and grossed out" that her catalogue belonged to Braun, whom she alleged subjected her to years of bullying. I think that artists deserve to own their work.

While Ithaca Holdings now has rights to the master recordings - the actual tracks laid down by Swift and her studio collaborators - they are still her songs.

At least judging by its singles, the forthcoming Taylor Swift album Lover is one of the musician's chirpiest, most unhurried releases yet - which only makes the considerable behind-the-scenes drama she has been embroiled in over the last few months that more notable.

Swift, whose new album releases Friday, made the comment in an interview that's set to air on "CBS Sunday Morning" this weekend. "Music I wrote on my bedroom floor and videos I dreamed up and paid for from the money I earned playing in bars, then clubs, then arenas, then stadiums". Taylor's dad, Scott Swift, was a shareholder in Big Machine Records, LLC.

But Page Six reports that it would be "impossible" for Swift to do so because her contract prevents the bold move.

At the beginning of July, Swift discovered that her masters had been sold to Scooter Braun.

"I'm so excited because the video for 'You Need to Calm Down, ' the video for "ME!,' I wrote the treatment for those videos, so it's really exciting to be nominated", she told Roberts".

Fans, who had camped out over night, were in awe of the star and so were the GMA hosts who crowed the stage with Taylor and even snapped some seflies with the A-lister. 'My contract says starting from November 2020 I can start re-recording albums one through five'.

What are your thoughts on Swift committing to taking back her masters with newly recorded versions of her hit songs?
