Taylor Swift wants to re-record her old hits after ownership row

American singer-songwriter, Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift has said she intends to record new versions of her hit songs after her back catalogue was bought by pop manager Scooter Braun.

In June, Swift revealed the masters of her early music had been sold to him by her former record label, alleging she was not told about it.

The singer accused Braun, who also manages Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato, of “incessant, manipulative bullying”.

She said she “absolutely” plans to re-record music from her first six albums.

In a clip released from an interview on the CBS Sunday Morning show, she was asked whether she planned to re-record the old material so she could own the rights to new versions. “Yeah, absolutely,” she replied.

In another interview, with Good Morning America on Thursday, Swift confirmed she would be re-recording her first five albums in 2020, which is when her contract allows her to do so.
