Despite a very public feud with Taylor Swift, her former label, the just acquired by Scooter Braun Big Machine Records, is wasting no time cashing in on her catalog with the release of five songs from her 2006 self-titled debut album on limited-edition vinyl.
In celebration of the LP’s 13th anniversary this October, the record label announced on Wednesday (July 10) that Swift’s single, “Teardrops on My Guitar,” will be released on seven-inch for a limited period. The single also features on its B-side a live acoustic version of the track, recorded in 2007.
Big Machine’s announcement of the re-release arrives a mere week after Swift took to Tumblr to air out her feelings about Scooter Braun, whose company Ithica Holdings Ltd. recently acquired the singer’s former record label as well as the masters of her first six albums, and accuse him of years of bullying. In the lengthy post, Swift also questioned the loyalty of Big Machine’s former CEO/founder Scott Borchetta with whom she worked very closely since her teens.
The limited edition vinyl re-issue of “Teardrops on My Guitar” starts shipping on August 30.
