Ever since it was revealed that Taylor Swift‘s master recordings were sold to Scooter Braun, the pop star has been very vocal about how displeased she is. Both sides have aired their dirty laundry online, and heads over at BigHit even jumped in.
BUT even though the 29-year-old singer still owns the publishing rights to the music, some of the royalties for her old songs will now go to Scooter. If she re-records the songs and releases them through her new label, Taylor will seemingly get all of the royalties. (BUT legaly that will probably not be the case, and the move can still put money in Scooter's pockets.)
In a new interview with CBS Sunday Morning, which will air this weekend, Taylor was asked if she plans on making new recordings of the old songs so she regains control of the recordings.
“Oh yeah,” Taylor responded. The interviewer then said, “That’s a plan?” and Taylor said, “Yeah, absolutely.”
Page Six is reporting that there are terms in her contract with Big Machine that could prevent her from actually releasing new recordings though.
Taylor‘s new album Lover drops on Friday.
