Taylor Swifts team responds to Big Machines denial

(NME) – Taylor Swift fans around the world have been celebrating to mark the fact the musician is free to re-record her original music once more.

Borchetta is the founder Swift’s former label Big Machine, who sold her back catalog to Scooter Braun’s company as part of a $300 million deal which included the ownership of her first six records – from her 2006 self-titled debut album through to 2017’s ‘Reputation’.

Swift accused Braun of “incessant manipulative bullying” and claimed she was “sad and grossed out” when it emerged that Braun controlled her master records, before he claimed that he had “no malicious intent” and “did everything aboard”. In a bid to reclaim control of her music, Swift stated that she planned to re-record her songs from the first six records.

Speaking on Good Morning America last summer, Swift confirmed that she was re-recording her old records and explained that she could do so this November.

‘Yeah that’s true,” Taylor replied when she was asked if she was re-recording all her original albums. “And it is something that I am very excited about doing,” she continued, “because my contract says that starting November 2020, so next year, I can record albums one through five all over again so…I’m very excited about it.’
