With rescheduled UK & Ireland tour dates being announced imminently, Cormac Neeson has released the official music video for his latest single, Do Something Today, lifted from his acclaimed White Feather album.
Directed by William De Ritter, the music video was 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 the 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 album, White Feather, which was due for a deluxe re-issue and release worldwide in May, has been delayed to later in 2020 due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, but will drop prior to Neeson’s solo tour dates.
The deluxe edition is 16 tracks including two brand new studio recordings, three bonus tracks and the new radio mix of latest single Do Something Today. Originally released only 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!”
