Taylor Swift accidentally releases 8 seconds of white noise, tops Canadian iTunes chart

  1. To say that Taylor Swift fans are excited for the singer's new album1989 to be released on Oct. 27 would be an understatement.

    Case in point: When a track containing nothing but eight seconds of white noise was accidentally released under the album's name on Tuesday morning, it shot to the top of Canada's iTunes chart almost immediately.

    The release of the audio file, entitled "Track 3," was reportedly the result of an iTunes glitch — but that didn't stop eager fans from shelling out $1.29 to download the song.

    Some of them reached out to the pop star herself for answers after listening to it.
