Taylor Swift says she plans to re-record her songs' masters

Share

In a fiery Tumblr post, Swift claimed that she was unaware of the deal, but former Big Machine Records owner Scott Borchetta published correspondence between him and Swift that appeared to prove otherwise.

Swift, whose new album releases Friday, made the comment in an interview that's set to air on "CBS Sunday Morning" this weekend.

The plan is not unprecedented: pop signer JoJo, who struggled for years with label issues, re-recorded and released her first two albums Jojo and The High Road in 2018. "Instead, I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and "earn" one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in", Swift wrote at the time.

According to the Associated Press, in a preview of the segment the reporter asks Swift if she would consider re-recording her songs in order to own the new versions, and Swift said, "Oh yeah".

It is common practice for artists to not own their masters, but Swift was in a financial position to purchase them from Big Machine.

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

Following the interview, Swift performed "You Need to Calm Down" and "Me!" from the new album, before concluding with "Shake It Off". Braun is Kanye West's former manager, and her in post, Swift references West by writing that he "organized a revenge porn music video which strips my body naked", referencing the music video Famous, which depicts a nude Swift.

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

"I couldn't believe that my name is in a Taylor Swift song (what?!?) and after Taylor played me the entire album it gave me such incredible inspiration for the collaboration and it really revolved around the music", McCartney told the magazine.

"Yeah that's true and it's something I'm very excited about". She called the purchase "my worst-case scenario". Braun, the man responsible for bringing a young Canadian YouTuber named Justin Bieber to the mainstream, is an industry titan who Swift alleges has bullied her for years.
