It won’t be long before Taylor Swift can re-record her old albums.

The pop star revealed ahead of a “Good Morning America” concert Thursday in Central Park that she’s only a little over a year away from being able to record much of her musical catalog again amid her dispute with talent executive Scooter Braun.

“It’s something that I’m very excited about doing because my contract says that starting November 2020, so next year, I can record albums one through five all over again,” Swift told “GMA” host Robin Roberts, confirming her plans to re-record the music.

The singer’s appearance on the ABC morning show came a day after a preview for an upcoming “CBS This Morning” interview was released, in which Swift confirmed her plans to re-record her music.

Swift, 29, publicly slammed Braun in June after he obtained the rights to most of her music, writing in an open letter that she could only think of “the incessant, manipulative bullying I’ve received at his hands for years."

During her “GMA” interview Thursday, Swift said she’s excited that her new album, “Lover,” will be the first in which she owns her work.

“I just think that artists deserve to own their work,” she told Roberts. “I just feel very passionately about that.”

“Lover,” which releases Friday, will be Swift’s seventh studio album and first since “Reputation,” which came out in 2017.

She performed two singles from the album, “Me!” and “You Need to Calm Down," in Central Park following the interview, as well as an older hit, “Shake It Off.”
