The interviewer followed up and asked if that was her plan, and she said, "Yeah, absolutely".

Ever since it was revealed that Taylor Swift's master recordings were sold to Scooter Braun, fans have been hoping that she'll re-record her music. A quick math check puts Taylor's first four albums - Taylor Swift (2006), Fearless (2008), Speak Now (2010) and Red (2012) out of the five year range (1989 isn't far behind, as it will have its five-year anniversary on October 27, 2019), but none of them would be out of the two-year mark of her Big Machine contract, which only ended in 2018 - so, about a year ago. Determined to regain control of her music, Swift made a decision to re-record the songs - she hasn't specified how many - which would allow her to hold the new masters.

Swift's upcoming album, "Lover", will be her first release under her new label, Republic Records. Braun is Kanye West's former manager, and her in post, Swift references West by writing that he "organized a revenge porn music video which strips my body naked", referencing the music video Famous, which depicts a nude Swift. "You deserve to own the art you make".

When asked by Smith whether the future held a trip to the recording studio to revisit all of her old tracks, Swift was definite in her response.

"So when it came time to write this album, I name checked her in one of my songs, and when I played her the album, I said, 'Should we do something?'" she added.

As a songwriter, Taylor is in a unique position against other artists - leading fans to wonder why any of this is an issue at all, considering that, as a writer, she would own her music. He knew what he was doing; they both did. If she re-records the songs and releases them through her new label, Taylor will seemingly get all of the royalties. Revenue generated by the original versions will go to Big Machine, and Braun.

However, another industry source tells us Swift will, in fact, be able to re-record her earlier songs.
