CORMAC NEESON – WHITE FEATHER DELUXE EDITION FINALLY RELEASED NOV 6th
NOV TOUR 2020 POSTPONED DUE TO COVID-19
HIS LIVE STREAM “COCOONS” EVENT REACHS AN INCREDIBLE 32nd WEEKLY SHOW DURING LOCKDOWN
“For all its heavyweight subject matter, there’s a sense of joy and gratitude running through this album. Any one of these timeless, tastefully crafted songs could serve to broaden Neeson’s commercial appeal” (Planet Rock Magazine)
The long awaited reissue of Cormac Neeson’s highly acclaimed White Feather album, will be finally released on Friday Nov 6th 2020 as a special 16 track bonus edition deluxe CD and 12” heavyweight Vinyl format version. The original 2018 White Feather album, a former top 5 chart success in the UK national Country album, was a limited Cd release back in April 2018. Every single copy of the new deluxe and Vinyl versions ordered through Cormac’s webstore will be personally signed by Cormac as a special thank you to fans for their incredible patience and support – Buy here! https://cormac-neeson-uk.myshopify.com/
The White Feather deluxe edition was originally going to be supported by a 14 date UK & Ireland songwriter club tour but sadly this has now been cancelled due to the ongoing uncertainty in the live sector caused by the continuing Covid-19 pandemic.
As a result Cormac will be performing a very special live streaming event on Nov 5th from Hillview Studios Northern Ireland during which he will perform the full White Feather album with his band and special guests. Then on Nov 7th, the 32nd edition of his incredible Facebook “Cocoons” live performance ‘in the round’ event will take place with artists from the Australian Social Family Record label. “Cocoons” is an international songwriter / performance event which Cormac started back in April 2020 and has now grown to over 3,000 members from all over the world, with a weekly selection of 5 artists usually performing two songs each on a Saturday evening ‘in the round’.
The Deluxe Edition of White Feather is 16 tracks including two brand new studio recordings, three bonus tracks and the new radio mix of Do Something Today. Originally released only as a 10 track limited edition, the original album received critical acclaim across the board, one that will sit easily alongside the classic singer-songwriter narrative albums.
Cormac states: “I’m thrilled that White Feather will finally be released as a full 16 track version with Vinyl but I’m just so sorry that I won’t be able to perform to my fans on the planned Nov 2020 tour. It would have been such a joyous and uplifting occasion but for all the reasons we know, it can’t happen at this time. I will sign every single copy which fans purchase and will continue to play online as much as possible as performing is the one thing that keeps us all sane! Thanks so much for all the love and support!”
