Swift plans to re-record first six albums

Wednesday, August 21, 2019 – Taylor Swift said in an interview slated to be released on CBS Sunday Morning that she would re-record her first six albums in an effort to regain control over her work.

Swift, who releases a new disc, "Lover," on Friday on Universal Music, chastised her former label, Big Machine Label Group, for selling the label for $300million to Ithaca Holdings, which is controlled by Scooter Braun. Swift has accused Braun of bullying her.

When interviewer Smith asked whether Swift would try to rerecord her early music, the singer responded, "Oh yeah."

"That's a plan?" Smith asked to which Swift said, "Yeah, absolutely."

Swift had been encouraged by other artists to re-record her own music to gain control over the recordings. Her first album, which was self-titled, came out in 2006. Other albums were "Fearless" in 2008, "Speak Now" in 2010, "Red" in 2012, "1989" in 2014 and "Reputation," which marked Swift's shift into pop music, in 2016.

Swift accused Big Machine Scott Borchetta of blindsiding her and not telling her that he had made a deal. Borchetta denied that, saying he had texted Swift on the morning that the deal was announced to let her know. Justin Bieber got involved in social media, going after her for trashing Braun, who is his manager.

Swift's father, Scott, was a shareholder of Big Machine.

CBS Sunday Morning airs from 9-10:30 a.m. this Sunday.

CD review - Speak Now Taylor Swift has made the best CD of her young career with her fourth CD. The biggest difference is that Swift's singing, spotty on previous releases and live performances, is far far superior here. Swift wrote all 14 songs here, which like her other albums tend to deal with relationships that have gone south. Swift's songwriting always has been one of her strengths, and that continues to be the case here - both lyrically and musically. Put simply, Swift knows a lot about penning ...
CD review - Fearless Taylor Swift took the county world by storm with her huge selling debut and its five hit singles. With a huge marketing push and myspace, Swift was on her way. Kind of like an Avril Lavigne for the teen female country set. Sophomore slump? There's no indication of that. Swift once again writes her material - all 13 songs here with help sometimes from Liz Rose, Colbie Caillat and John Rich. Swift writes of what she knows about - relationships and teen love come and gone in songs speak to her fans. ...
