Taylor Swift Says She Will "Absolutely" Re-Record Her First Six Albums

Former Sony Music executive Seth Schachner on Taylor Swift speaking out over her concerns about a Scooter Braun-led holding company acquiring her former label Big Machine Records which owns the master recordings of her first six studio albums.

Former Big Machine Records owner Scott Borchetta disputed her claim and published communications between himself and Swift in an attempt to prove she was aware of the deal.

In an interview with CBS Sunday Morning - which will air this Sunday - the "ME!" hitmaker says she will "absolutely" re-record her previous six albums, and will encourage fans to purchase the new ones, rather than the originals.

Swift told CBS News' Tracy Smith in an interview airing this weekend on "CBS Sunday Morning" that she's going to create the new masters to offset the deal.

When Smith asked Swift if she planned to re-record her early songs as a way of regaining control of her catalogue, Swift replied, "Oh yeah".

Cape Town - Multiple Grammy award-winning artist Taylor Swift is gearing up to release her new album, Lover, on Friday, 23 August.

Swift has a long-running feud with Braun. "I learned about Scooter Braun's purchase of my masters as it was announced to the world", she wrote.

While hungry fans certainly appreciated the gesture, Swift herself was touched by her dad's gesture.

While for the designer, she says the opportunity to collaborate with the singer was a no-brainer. The singer played three songs, but she also provided more details about her plan to re-record songs from her past albums. "I just feel very passionately about that", Taylor said.

Mr Braun manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande. She last appeared at the ceremony in 2015 to sing "Bad Blood". "All I could think about was the incessant, manipulative bullying I've received at his hands for years", she said in the post.
