The country-turned-pop star discussed the idea, as well as hammering on the fact that “artists deserve to own their work.”

Kelly Clarkson has already suggested the idea that Swift should-re-record her old material in a tweet she sent out last July. Although there are contracts that prohibit the re-recording of songs for a certain number of years, Swift shares that she would be able to do so in 2020.

“Yeah, that’s true and that’s something I’m very excited about doing. My contract says that starting November 2020, so next year, I can record the albums 1-5 all over again..”

She adds:

 

“I think artists deserve to own their work — I just feel very passionately about that.”

The “You Need to Calm Down” singer shared her frustrations in a lengthy Tumblr post that she did last Sunday. Swift even called it her ‘worst-case scenario,’ but is now relieved that she is no longer on the label.

“For years I asked, pleaded for a chance to own my work. Instead I was given an opportunity to sign back up to Big Machine Records and ‘earn’ one album back at a time, one for every new one I turned in.”

Celebrity manager Scooter Braun has acquired Big Machine Label Group via his Ithaca Holdings, having her previous label being bought by Braun prevents her from buying and owning the first six albums in her catalog. However, the future seems bright for Swift and her music.
