Taylor Swift has shaken up the music industry with the Rerecording of her 2012 album Red. After Scooter Braun bought her master recordings, Swift made a promise to rerecord her hit albums in attempt to “stick it” to her betrayers.
People never actually thought she would follow through with the effort. There was hope that this would all pass over.In fact her rerecorded songs are streaming more than her originals.
Now, Universal is revising it’s recording deals that prevent artists from rerecording their music.
Well it seems that only Taylor Swift could do a cover of her own album and get away with it.
Personally I think it’s a clever move on her part and with record labels changing their contract to stop others from doing the same, she has really given the music industry a bit of a shake-up
