Imported track is blue and just sounds like static

I tried to import an mp3 file but when I played it, it was just static. The file sounds normal when I play it on my computer’s media player, and I recorded some other instrumentals in audacity and they sounded fine, but for some reason this one mp3 file doesnt work.

So there could be a bug in the mp3 file encoding that Audacity is sensitive to. You can try converting the .mp3 file to .wav with VLC or with an online utility.
