Don DeLillo on Taylor Swift
on 25 October 2014
This week, Taylor Swift had a song off her new album 1989 hit #1 on the Canadian iTunes charts. Though this sounds like typical Swift news, the catch was that "Track 3" was eight seconds of static—due to an iTunes Store glitch in the country, leaving adoring fans (who dropped $1.29 to download it) confused. Taking full advantage of this opportunity, The Atlantic tapped none other than the author of "White Noise," Don DeLillo, to review the white noise track in this short satirical piece.
