Taylor Swift has a plan to get her masters back.

In clips from an interview with Tracy Smith on CBS Sunday Morning, the music superstar revealed that she intends to rerecord her songbook to offset the controversial $300 million deal between Scooter Braun and Big Machine Label Group founder Scott Borchetta that put earlier versions of her masters in the hands of Braun.

Following the news that Braun's Ithaca Holdings had acquired Big Machine Label Group, and with it the entire catalog Swift released through Borchetta's label, Swift took to Tumblr to share why she was upset with the deal and directly addressed Braun and Borchetta. She referred to the deal as her "worst case scenario" and notes that she learned of the deal "as it was announced to the world," and that the news immediately brought her back to "the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at [Braun's] hands for years."

Scooter Braun Recalls Taylor Swift Being ‘Kind’ to Him When They First Met Scooter Braun has nothing but nice things to say about Taylor Swift amid their feud over his $300 million purchase of the Big Machine label, which included much of her music catalog masters. 

Borchetta responded to Swift's fighting words in his own post, titled "So, it’s time for some truth…," where he wrote that her dad, Scott Swift, is a shareholder in Big Machine and was notified of a call with shareholders taking place June 25, saying that all shareholders were notified of the pending deal with Ithaca. Borchetta also argued that Swift and her attorney Don Passman went over the document in great detail and talked through the deal together.

In the in-depth interview, Swift tells Smith that despite contrary reports from Big Machine officials, she learned of the deal "when it was online" and heard nothing about it from anyone in her team about it.
