Why Taylor Swift Is Rerecording Her Sophomore Album

If you haven’t been following up on Taylor Swifts career, you might be wondering why she’s rerecording an album she released 13 years ago. Swift actually doesn’t own the master recording rights to any of her music previous to her seventh studio album ‘Lover’.

After a very lengthy and public feud with music producer Scooter Braun and Big Machine Records, Swift took a different direction to claim her work. By rerecording her older music, she regains the rights and control of those songs. Since they are a “new version” of her original releases it does not break any legal guidelines according to her past contract.

Swift showed her gratitude to fans in a statement by saying that “this process has been more fulfilling and emotional than I could’ve imagined and has made me even more determined to re-record all of my music.”

Along with rerecording her “Fearless” album, Swift also released 2 sister albums this year, “Folklore and Evermore,” both recorded in quarantine during the pandemic. It’s easy to say that as an artist, Taylor Swift never disappoints when it comes to creating music for her fans.

Who else is going to spend their Valentines Day listening to ‘Love Story’ on repeat?!
