NEW YORK (AP) — Taylor Swift plans to re-record her songs after popular music manager Scooter Braun purchased her catalog.
“CBS Sunday Morning” previewed some of its pre-taped interviews with Swift on Wednesday. Swift told the reporter she would consider re-recording her songs in order to own the new versions. When asked if that was the plan, Swift replied with: “Yeah, absolutely.”
In late June, Braun’s Ithaca Holdings announced that it had acquired Big Machine Label Group. The group was led by Scott Borchetta and was home to Swift’s first six albums, including Grammy winners “Fearless” and “1989.”
Swift said last November that she signed with Universal Music Group instead of staying at Big Machine because she knew that re-signing would only result in her not owning her future work.
Braun manages Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande.
The full interview will air Sunday on CBS at 9 a.m. Eastern.
