Taylor Swift has been re-recording albums, but why? Which comes next?
Taylor Swift, a highly successful artist, is re-recording her previous albums in an effort to regain ownership of her music catalog.
In 2021, she released re-recordings of her albums 'Red' and 'Fearless,' both achieving great success.
Swift plans to re-record all 10 of her studio albums, with 'Speak Now' announced as the next release.
Her decision to re-record stems from her former record label selling her music catalog for $300 million.
Swift's old manager, Scooter Braun, acquired ownership of her first six albums in 2020, leading to a strained relationship between them.
The artist has tried to buy back her music rights but was unable to due to a clause in her early record deal.
In addition to the re-recordings, Swift has also released previously unheard tracks, delighting her longtime fans.
Swift believes Braun has been bullying her and aims to undermine her work, further motivating her re-recording efforts.
