CMU’s Andy Malt and Chris Cooke review key events in music and the music business from the last week, including Taylor Swift’s statement to a US court as part of the long-running song-theft legal battle over her 2014 hit ‘Shake It Off’ in which she explains how she came up with the lyrics for her track, while also insisting there was no way she could have been exposed to the song she is accused of ripping off before creating ‘Shake It Off’, plus some interesting new stats comparing consumer spending in the UK on recorded music and live music – and the impact of COVID-19 on all that.
