Award-winning artist Taylor Swift says she is in the process of re-recording her first five albums after Scooter Braun sold the masters to a private equity firm for upwards of $300 million.

Braun’s Ithaca Holdings LLC purchased Nashville-based Big Machine Label Group in June 2019. The acquisition included Swift's entire catalogue from when she signed with Big Machine in 2006 to when her contract expired in fall 2018.
Braun will still profit off her albums for the foreseeable future.

In August 2019, Swift announced that she intended to re-record her songs after her contract said she'd be able to do so starting in November 2020.
On November 16, 2020, she said the re-recording process has been ‘both exciting and creativity fulfilling’ and promised ‘plenty of surprises’ when the music is ultimately released.
