Taylor Swift says she plans to re-record her songs’ masters
NEW YORK (AP) — Taylor Swift plans to re-record her songs after her catalog was purchased by popular music manager Scooter 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.”
Braun’s Ithaca Holdings announced in June that it acquired Big Machine Label Group, home to Swift’s first six albums. Swift said in 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.
The full interview will air Sunday on CBS at 9 a.m. Eastern.
