Swifties Celebrate Because Taylor Swift Can Now Re-Record Her First 5 Albums

Taylor Swift can celebrate because she can finally re-record her first five albums.

In June 2019, Scooter Braun acquired Swift’s masters as part of the purchase of Big Machine Records. Braun and Swift have a long-running feud and Swift made no secret about how angry she was that the music executive bought her catalogue.

During an interview with “Good Morning America” at the time, Swift said that she planned to re-record the albums as soon as her contract allowed her.

“I think it’s important for artists to own their work,” Swift said. “My contract says that starting November 2020 — so, next year — I can record albums 1 through 5 all over again. I’m very excited about it.”

Since Reputation didn’t come out until 2017, she will have to wait until 2022 to re-record that one. In November 2018, Swift signed with Universal Music Group ahead of Lover, so she could outright own her work.
