The disputed rights to Taylor Swift’s master recordings were sold by the new boss of his former label, Big Machine Label Group.
The pop star was outraged when Scooter Braun and its partners Ithaca Holdings LLC acquired the company – and with it its back catalog – in 2019, and now it appears he sold the recordings to the bosses of an investment fund. for over $ 300 million, reports Variety.
After Scooter bought her masters, Taylor wrote an open letter, in which she called the move “worst case” and revealed that she had never been a fan of the music director, who orchestrated the careers of Justin Bieber and Ariana Grande, among others.
Scooter finally addressed the controversy last year, revealing that Taylor fans had threatened his life and the lives of his family members.
Swift has also indicated on several occasions that she will re-record her songs from her six Big Machine albums as soon as she can legally, so that she permanently owns those songs.
Taylor has yet to comment on the news, but fellow singer / songwriter Sara Bareilles has targeted Braun and the silver men behind the new contract, saying, “I’ll never feel like it’s than a flight of f-ing. Greed is also a virus and it is everywhere. F – that. @ taylorswift13 sends you love. “
