Taylor Swift Confirms Plans to Rerecord Early Songs Following Scooter Braun Deal

All of Taylor Swift’s first six studio albums will be rerecorded after her former label Big Machine was sold to Scooter Braun. The pop star said in an interview with CBS Sunday Morning that there “absolutely” is a plan to revisit songs from records including Speak Now, Red and 1989.

Hours after Swift said she was grossed by Braun’s acquisition of Big Machine Label Group and her catalog, Borchetta responded with their lengthy comments on the label’s website, essentially accusing Swift of bending the truth.


The singer received a lot of support and backlash when she publicly called out Braun and Borchetta after news of their deal went public. In a Tumblr post, Taylor accused the manager of “manipulative bullying” over the years. From a previous post, it was said that Swift had to sign a deal that would bind her to the label for another ten years.

Big Machine Label declined to the comment, and neither Swift nor Borchetta have said further about their failed contract negotiations — including the specifics of any offers that were made from either side last year.

Taylor Swift’s seventh studio album, Lover, is out at midnight on Friday and will be her first released under her new label Republic Records.
