Taylor Swift has confirmed she will re-record her first six albums after Scooter Braun purchased Big Machine record label.
In clips from an upcoming interview with Tracy Smith on CBS Sunday Morning Show the singing sensation admitted she has every intention of re-recording those albums. Swift was also clear with Smith that despite reports from Big Machine big wigs, she learned of the sale online. There was never a phone call like the former owner, Scott Borchetta claimed in an Instagram post.
Smith wasted no time in the candid chat to ask Swift if she was going to re-record her first six albums. It is a move several people, including The Voice judge Kelly Clarkson, suggested Swift pursue.
“Oh yeah,” Swift responded when Smith asked her about regaining control of her music.
“That’s a plan?” Smith questioned.
“Yeah, absolutely,” the ‘You Need To Calm Down’ singer answered.
The interview was supposed to be a chance for Swift to promote her new album, Lover, which drops on Friday, August 23rd. CBS Morning Show will also give fans a behind the scenes look at Swift creating her new music video, as well as the release of her first single off the album.
However, since news broke, Braun now owned the rights to her masters the feud between him and Swift has become one hot topic. Swift used a lengthy Tumblr message to express her disgust over Braun now owning music she poured her heart and soul into. The music she wrote on the floor of her bedroom as a teenager.
3 days until Lover!!! ❤️❤️❤️
