Taylor Swift Performs ‘GMA’ / Expands On Plans To Re-Record Old Albums

Published: Thursday 22nd Aug 2019 by Sam

Taylor Swift took over Central Park today as part of the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series.

The showing comes on the eve of the release of her brand new album ‘Lover,’ which functions as the first offering from a fresh pact with Republic Records.

As well as performing songs from the LP together with some of her biggest hits, Swift sat down with GMA’s Robin Roberts and seized the opportunity to address a number of pressing topics. Most notable the drama surrounding her back-catalogue.

Widely reported is Scooter Braun‘s acquisition of the singer’s pre-Lover material, which occurred as part of a broader purchase of her former label Big Machine.

Swift has publicly voiced her disgust and just yesterday revealed that she planned to re-record her material so as to own and licence those masters (a la JoJo, TLC, and Prince).

What quickly followed was weigh-ins from analysts pointing out the legal technicalities that could make it difficult for Swift to proceed as outlined.

Well, she’s clapped back in an emphatic way.

Details below…

Dispelling the doubt surrounding her intent, the 29-year-old explained that – per her contract – she can begin re-recording her first five albums from November 2020. Something she says she absolutely will be doing.

She said:

“Yeah that’s true and it’s something I’m very excited about. My contract says starting from November 2020 I can start re-recording albums 1-5. I think artists deserve to own their own work. It’s next year, I’m gonna be busy.”

Peep her performances:

‘Lover’ arrives tomorrow (August 23rd).

    The album version of ME! doesn’t contain the line, “Hey kids, spelling is fun!” ? She’s obviously reading comments on the internetz lol ? ?

      You have to work and use the computer and internet, and if you can do that and dedicate some time each day then you can do this with no problem.
      I have been working with this for a month and have made over $2,000 already. let me know if you need more help.

    I don’t see a black soul, with Britney was in her prime she had all kind of fans from black to white

    • Jasmine August 22, 2019

      It is a different kind of black person who likes Taylor….an assimilated Uncle Tom coooon. Taylor’s music is geared strictly towards young whites and old whites who are trying to appear hip to their kids!

      Britney’s music was urban and appealing to all. From Toxic to Ooops I Did It Again to Gimme More to Slave For You it was URBAN. Jive had a lot of black people writing and producing Britney’s music like R. Kelly, Pharrell, Missy, Timbaland, Keri Hilson, Yang Twins, etc. Most of Britney’s background vocals are done by black singers. Behind the scenes black gay men were the ones getting Britney together when it came to choreography, makeup, stage presence, and how to work the stage. I think she always used white hair dressers though.

        @jasmine I sense some shade towards the hairdressers there lol

      Its a different time. These days it seems like blacks must only like black Artists and whites are not allowed to like black Artists. At least if you look at the Blogs (like this one).

      And Britney had a different Kind of music and was more interesting

        Say what? “Its a different time. These days it seems like blacks must only like black Artists and whites are not allowed to like black Artists. At least if you look at the Blogs (like this one).”

        As ratchet as this damn blog is, they give attention to people of every ethnicity (Britney, Beyoncé, Cardi, Nicki, Katy, Taylor, Demi, Selena (and Selena Gomez), etc. etc.

        It doesn’t matter who is making what music. If the music is good, people of all ethnicities and backgrounds will like it. Music knows no color, and transcends time, backgrounds, etc. So, respectfully, that was a really uneducated comment. Respectfully.

    I saw the post about Jojo re-recording her past albums but Which albums or songs did TLC and Prince re-recorded?

    • Fancy BISH August 22, 2019

      I think TLC just re-recorded certain songs…I know they did Creep and Waterfalls…listen at your own risk chile ? It’s not terrible, it’s just…..different lol…the beginning of Creep had me rolling tho! It’s crazy how every nuance of a song is remembered and when it’s different, you’re like ?

    • Danny Bey August 22, 2019

      TLC had to re-record Waterfalls for the Japanese release of their great hits album ’20’ with a Japanese pop star Namie Amuro redoing Left Eye’s rap bc T Boz and Chilli dont own or have access to any of Lisa’s vocals/raps.

    I used to love Taylor but this era is just off. It honestly reminds me of Ciara’s “Fantasy Ride” era and “Basic Instinct” eras. Ciara tried something different with FR and it flopped, so she went back to her basics (hood-ish R&B, dance music like the first album), but it didn’t come off as genuine and flopped even worse. Now, that is not shade because I personally lived for Basic Instinct (Ride is one of her best songs).

    BUT, all of that to say, Taylor is trying too hard to be light and fun and likable like she was with 1989, but it’s not coming off as genuine and is not going to work in the longterm. I mean, girl, replacing that snake from the reputation era with a flower wall is not working. It’s not. Take a break and develop a new, more mature sound, please.

    Signed a former Taylor fan.

    Taylor Swift sucks, I don’t give a damn who’s buying her music. And don’t @ me with her sales stats, she’ll still suck when you finish typing them lol.
