Taylor Swift Explains Her Plan to Re-Record Her Music

Taylor Swift is on the cover of Billboard‘s Women in Music issue, out on newsstands on Saturday (December 14).

Here’s what the “Look What You Made Me Do” singer-songwriter had to say…

On advocating for artists’ rights: “New artists and producers and writers need work, and they need to be likable and get booked in sessions, and they can’t make noise — but if I can, then I’m going to… I know that it seems like I’m very loud about this, but it’s because someone has to be.”

On her focus this past year: “I’ve spent a lot of time recalibrating my life to make it feel manageable. Because there were some years there where I felt like I didn’t quite know what exactly to give people and what to hold back, what to share and what to protect.”

On why she plans to re-record her music: “The reason I’m rerecording my music next year is because I do want my music to live on. I do want it to be in movies, I do want it to be in commercials. But I only want that if I own it.”

On the expectations she’s faced: “I’ve had several upheavals of somehow not being what I should be. And this happens to women in music way more than men.”
