Taylor Swift shot straight to the top of the charts in Canada with her latest single, “Track 3,” earlier in the week. Actually, it was a mistake and the track was just 7-8 seconds of static. Maybe she should have performed it as part of her two-song live set on Hollywood Blvd.¬†Thursday for ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

During her interview with Kimmel, Swift admitted she had no idea what to think of that, but Kimmel had an interesting interpretation.

“Well it just goes to show you, you really don’t need to work that hard on this stuff.” he told the singer.

“I’ve been really overthinking this entire thing,” Swift realized. “I’ve been really trying too hard, clearly.” Why put all that effort into crafting songs and recording them when static will do?

They decided that “Track 3” was like her Beatles’ “White Album.” It’s her “White Noise.”

Earlier in their chat, Kimmel talked with Swift about her Instagram campaign where she’s been releasing snippets of lyrics from her upcoming album, “1989,” hand-crafted into artful images, though she claimed no ownership of one he showed about doing laundry.

Swift took to the street for a live performance that temporarily shut down Hollywood Blvd. as 15,000 fans showed up to cheer her on Thursday afternoon.

Taylor Swift‘s “1989” will be available beginning Oct. 27. “Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.
