Taylor Swift Confirms That She Will Re-Record Her Albums On ‘GMA’
Taylor Swift dropped by Good Morning America earlier today (August 21) to belt out “ME!” and “You Need To Calm Down.” She then sat down with Robin Roberts for a chat and dropped a bombshell. The 29-year-old will indeed re-record her discography in a bid to own her masters. “One thing that’s really special to me about this album is that it is the first one that I will own of my work,” the superstar said in reference to the imminent release of Lover. Taylor then confirmed that she will be revisiting her old albums.
“Yeah that’s true and it’s something that I’m very excited about doing because my contract says that starting November 2020 – so next year – I can record albums one through five all over again,” Taylor revealed. “Because I just think that artists deserve to own their work. I just feel very passionately about that. Yeah it’s next year, it’s right around the corner. I’m going to be busy.” Of course, the “Delicate” hitmaker was open about her disgust at Scott Borchetta selling Big Machine Records (and her entire back catalogue) to Scooter Braun.
“This is my worst case scenario,” Taylor wrote in a blog post. “When I left my masters in Scott’s hands, I made peace with the fact that eventually he would sell them. Never in my worst nightmares did I imagine the buyer would be Scooter.” It looks like the pop star might have the last laugh after all. Check out her Q&A and performances on GMA below.
