“It’s the second time my music has been sold without my knowledge,” says Taylor Swift.
American singer Taylor Swift has confirmed that musician Scooter Braun has sold the rights to her first six albums.
– As you know, over the last year I have been actively trying to reclaim the rights to my music catalog, Swift writes on Twitter.
In 2019 Scooter Braun bought the record label Big Machine Records. It was Taylor’s old record label, before changing to the “Universal Music Group”. Along with record label sales, Taylor released his first six albums, which he calls “his musical heritage.”
This prevented him from having a large part of his music catalog.
But now Scooter Braun has sold the rights to the music catalog to an investment fund, he writes BBC.
According to the BBC, the deal will cost more than $ 300 million.
And on Twitter, Swift makes it clear:
– My music is sold for the second time without me being informed.
In a statement, the pop star wrote that he and his band had tried to hold an interview with Braun to negotiate the catalog.
Braun’s legal team wrote that he wanted to sign a confidentiality agreement, saying he would never say a word about Scooter Braun unless he was positive.
The BBC has sent a questionnaire to Brown, but has not commented on the matter.
Eventually, Swift wrote on Twitter that she has started re-recording her old hits so they can take ownership of themselves.
– It is exciting and creative and meaningful.
