Taylor Swift has revealed plans to rerecord her back catalogue following the acquisition of Big Machine Label Group (BMLG) by Scooter Braun's Ithaca Holdings, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The singer disclosed the plan in an interview with Tracy Smith on CBS Sunday Morning.
This move will allow Taylor to regain control over her first six albums after the acquisition put the master rights to her catalog in the hands of Scooter Braun and Ithaca Holdings, a deal which she slammed as her "worst case scenario".
“Essentially, my musical legacy is about to lie in the hands of someone who tried to dismantle it,” Taylor has said about the acquisition. The claim was, however, disputed by BMLG CEO Scott Borchetta in an open letter via the BMLG website.
Taylor's interview with CBS is set to air this Sunday, 25 August, after the release of her highly anticipated album, Lover, on Friday, 23 August. The interview will also feature a behind-the-scenes look into Taylor's new single and music video.
