"None of these men will ever be able to take anything away from Taylor’s legacy as a songwriter, singer, director, philanthropist, and advocate for artists’ rights," the statement added.

Swift officially announced that she would be re-recording her first six albums in late 2020 after Braun sold the master rights of the records for more than $300 million. Back then, the singer explained in a statement that she had made efforts to enter into negotiations with Braun to buy her work back, but he never quoted her team a price, signifying her master recordings were not for sale to her.
