Cormac Neeson, the lead singer of The Answer, will embark on a 14 date UK & Ireland headline White Feather tour during November 2020, including a Belfast show at The Duncairn. Neeson will perform his poignant White Feather songs with a stripped-down trio in what is sure to be a very up close and personal rendition of his acclaimed White Feather album.
In support of the announcement, Social Family Records are making available a new video for Do Something Today available from April 29th 2020. The video, directed by William De Ritter is shot on Super 8 film and harks back to an older early 90’s style. Says Neeson, “I’ve always wanted to shoot a video on Super 8 and this seemed like the perfect song to live out that dream. We shot the whole thing in and around an old school arcade in my hometown which hasn’t lost the classic feel it had when it was me hanging about that place wondering what the future had in store. They were great days even if I didn’t fully realise it at the time. The video is set in the 90s and I think William (the director) captured that retro throwback vibe perfectly”
The White Feather album, due to be reissued in May 2020 on both Cd and Vinyl format by Social Family Records has been delayed to later in 2020 due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation but will be released before the tour commences.
Originally released as a 10 track limited edition, ‘White Feather’ was a top 5 album in the official UK Country Rock charts and received critical acclaim across the board, one that will sit easily alongside the classic singer-songwriter narrative albums.
Cormac states: “I’m thrilled to be able to take my White Feather songs out on the road and to be able to finally perform them in a true singer-songwriter setting. It’s going to feel very special to get back out again especially after all the lockdown uncertainty of the present world! It promises to be a joyous and uplifting tour and we are so looking forward to it. My label Social Family are working incredibly hard behind the scenes and we are confident that the reissue of White Feather will be available before the tour starts!”
