Taylor Swift has confirmed that she is planning to re-record her old songs following the controversial acquisition of her first six albums in a deal involving Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun and Swift's former label Big Machine Records.

During the summer it was reported that Braun had bought Big Machine Label Group in a deal said to be worth $300 million. Swift described the acquisition as her "worst case scenario".

In an interview on this weekend's CBS Sunday Morning in the US, Swift is asked by reporter Tracy Smith about whether she would re-record her old songs following the Big Machine deal.

"Oh yeah," Swift replies.

"That's a plan?" asks Smith.

"Yeah, absolutely," says Swift.

Swift signed a new record deal with Republic Records last year. Her new album, Lover, is released on Friday.
