Taylor Swift is finally free to re-record her original music.
In June 2019, Scooter Braun bought the rights to Swift's catalog from her original label, Big Machine. Two months later, Swift announced on Good Morning America that her plan was to re-record her first five albums as soon as her contract allowed it – in November 2020.
Fans started celebrating on Twitter Sunday (November 1st) that the singer is now free to re-record Taylor Swift, Fearless, Speak Now, Red, and 1989, potentially undercutting any profits Braun would gain off the original masters.
According to BuzzFeed, an artist as big as Swift re-recording their catalog is unprecedented in pop music.
