Taylor Swift Previews Newly Recorded “Love Story”: Watch it
Last year, after Scooter Braun and its Ithaca Holdings LLC bought the masters rights to Taylor Swift’s Big Machine catalog, Swift said she intended to re-record her albums in order to regain control of her masters. She now has a preview of a new version of “Love Story”. An ad is being recorded that Ryan Reynolds created for Match.com. In the ad, Satan and a woman named “2020” fall in love. See below.
Braun recently sold Swifts Master to a private equity firm called Shamrock Holdings. In response to the news, Swift said she was in the middle of her re-recording and promised “many surprises”.
