Everyone loves Taylor Swift and, for the moment, it seems that T-Swizzle can do no wrong. Her last single broke download records, she’s got more Grammys than teeth, and everything she touches seems to turn to gold. Or gold records. Even when she puts out no music, her name alone is enough to generate hit music. Eight seconds of silence attributed to Taylor Swift’s new album became a number one hit in Canada.
The track, called Track 3, was reported to be from Taylor’s upcoming album 1989, but it was just 8 seconds of white noise. A similar glitch occurred when a Track 1 became available a few hours early. That track ended up being “Welcome To New York,” which promptly became the number two hit behind, you guessed it, Track 3. Presumably Track 3 exists in some form and will eventually make its way to iTunes for downloading, and hopefully that track won’t end up being 8 seconds of white noise. Even if it is, I’m sure it’ll manage to go gold, if only due to name recognition.
Taylor Swift’s 1989 is due out next week, October 28.
