Background[edit]

"White Feather" was first performed on 6 February 2009 at the first of the band's two low-key comeback shows performed under the same alias, White Feather. The song was again performed at the second show, on 8 February, and later at the new lineup's first performance in the United States, on 1 May at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County.[1] On 9 May, Stockdale reported on his Twitter profile that he was "About to shred the solo on White Feather," describing it as "possibly the greatest song written since Womac[k] and Womac[k]'s "Foot Steps" Yes!"[2]

The "White Feather" single was first released on the Australian iTunes Store on 29 December 2009. According to independent music website Altsounds.com, a full single release was scheduled for 1 February 2010,[3] although promotional records released in December 2009 listed a 15 February 2010 release date.[4] The official release date is recognised as 22 February 2010.[5]
