Lightning On Her Feet: Taylor Swift tops Canadian charts with nine seconds of white noise

 

A glitch in the iTunes matrix has given Taylor Swift an unexpected chart-topping hit — nine seconds of white noise.

Fans gobbled up the song, titled simple “Track 3,” earlier this week after it was incorrectly listed on iTunes for the singer’s massive pre-order campaign of next week’s 1989 album. Swift’s latest single, “Welcome To New York,” dropped yesterday.

Says the Guardian, via Jezebel:

 

Given that Swift did release an actual single from the LP yesterday, “Welcome To New York”, many fans presumed this to be her next offering and went straight to downloading it without playing the sample of the track first.

Given that Swift did release an actual single from the LP yesterday, “Welcome To New York”, many fans presumed this to be her next offering and went straight to downloading it without playing the sample of the track first.

Swift may be living it up for 1989, but we are loving this fucked up life in 2014.
