Taylor Swift bashed her previous label, Big Machine Records, about their plans to publish live performances album on Thursday night, and she called the action that it’s “just another case of shameless greed in the time of coronavirus.”
“I want to thank my fans for making me aware that my former record label is putting out an ‘album’ of live performances of mine tonight,” Swift stated on an Instagram post on her account. “I’ve always been honest with you guys about this stuff so I just wanted to tell you that this release is not approved by me.”
Swift said the recordings in this album are radio show performances in 2008 that she performed when that was supposed to be published in 2017. Swift had been with Big Machine Records since she was 16 in 2006 since she started her career.
Big Machine Records didn’t respond yet on what Taylor has said.
“It looks to me like Scooter Braun and his financial backers … have seen the latest balance sheets and realized that paying $330 MILLION for my music wasn’t exactly a wise choice and that they need money,” Swift stated. “So tasteless, but very transparent.”
