Taylor Swift is officially re-recording all of her old songs and the singer has revealed she is loving every minute of it.
The 30-year-old was forced to start creating a new version of her classic music catalogue after her masters were bought (and then sold) by her rival Scooter Braun.
However, the singer has been having a great time reworking her earlier hits and her smash record Love Story was the most fun to record so far.
During an appearance on Wednesday’s Good Morning America, the singer explained: ‘I’m having a really good time… it’s a really amazing, fun adventure.
‘So far, of the ones I’ve recorded, I think it’s been the most fun doing Love Story because the older music, my voice was so teenaged and I sometimes, when I hear my older music and my older young teenage voice, it makes me feel like I’m a different singer now.’
The Cardigan hitmaker continued: ‘So it’s been the most fun to re-record ones that I feel like I could actually possibly improve upon the song.’
Days before Taylor gave fans a look into the creative process during her acceptance speech at the American Music Awards over the weekend.
The singer explained that she couldn’t attend the awards show as she was busy in the studio recording all her old music as promised.
‘The reason I’m not there tonight is I’m actually recording all of my old music in the studio where we originally recorded it. So it’s been amazing and I can’t wait for you to hear it,’ Taylor explained after being introduced by host Taraji P Henson.

Last week Taylor was forced to deny that she had bought back her catalogue from Big Machine label boss Scooter who reportedly sold her collection of songs in a deal worth $300 million (£224 million).
The 30-year-old singer revealed that another party, Shamrock Holdings, has purchased the music and contacted her prior to the sale taking place, despite Scooter allegedly requiring that they made no contact with Taylor or her team in order for the deal to go ahead.
Taylor explained that Scooter will still be ‘profiting’ from her old music catalogue for many years and because of that reason, she has decided against partnering with Shamrock Holdings and will instead continue with her plans to re-record her old music.
In a tweet, she said: ‘These master recordings were not for sale to me.
‘As soon as we started communication with Shamrock, I learned that under their terms Scooter will continue to profit off my music catalog for many years. I was hopeful and open to the possibility of a partnership with Shamrock, but Scooter’s participation is a non-starter for me.’
Taylor then promised fans: ‘I have recently begun re-recording my older music and it has already proven to be both exciting and creatively fulfilling. I have plenty of surprises in store.’
