Taylor Swift reveals her intention to re-record her old songs in an effort to offset Scooter Braun‘s purchase of her former label, Big Machine.

In an interview for an upcoming CBS Sunday Morning episode, host Tracy Smith asks the Pennsylvania native if she has a “plan” to create new masters of her classic tracks to regain control of the music on her early albums. “Yeah, absolutely,” Swift replies. The decision stems from when star manager Braun’s Ithaca Holdings acquired Scott Borchetta’s Big Machine Label Group in a deal reportedly worth $300 million.

In a now-famous Tumblr post, the “Bad Blood” singer called the deal – which gives Braun control over her first six albums – her “worst-case scenario,” accusing him of bullying her in the past through clients like Kanye West and Justin Bieber. In the time since, many high-profile artists have rushed to each side’s defense, with Borchetta penning his own blog post reply, “So, It’s Time For Some Truth.”

Regardless of who is supporting who, the re-recording of an entire six album collection is a Herculean undertaking that at first glance, seems like a logistical nightmare. Stay tuned as the story takes form with the full interview to be broadcast on August 25th at 9 a.m. EST on CBS.
