Newly helping spark the song’s profile, Carpenter is set to play both Coachella (April 12) and Governors Ball (June 8) this year; the lineups for each festival were announced Jan. 16.

“Feather” concurrently climbs 17-15 on the Pop Airplay chart and 40-33 on the all-format Radio Songs survey and debuts No. 49 on Streaming Songs.

With the single, released on Island/Republic Records, Carpenter bests the peaks of her two prior Hot 100 hits: “Nonsense” rose to No. 56 in February 2023 and “Skin” reached No. 48 in February 2021.

“Nonsense” also became Carpenter’s first Pop Airplay top 10, hitting No. 10.

“Feather” — which Carpenter co-wrote with Amy Allen and the song’s producer, John Ryan — is from the deluxe version, released in March 2023, of Carpenter’s album Emails I Can’t Send. The set, which debuted at its No. 23 high on the Billboard 200 in July 2022, claims Greatest Gainer honors on the latest list (137-76), up 42% to 12,000 equivalent album units.

Carpenter, who broke through in 2014 starring in Disney Channel’s Girl Meets World, opened on the South American run of Taylor Swift’s The Eras Tour last August-November. She’s scheduled to reprise her role in February-March on dates in Australia and Singapore.

“It’s so funny,” Carpenter told Billboard last summer of Republic labelmate Swift. “I’ve been growing up with her advice in her songs because it’s very much a how-to book on how to survive as a young woman, which is really special. Watching her in and of itself is how you learn. I admire her work ethic and her talent and she’s just so amazing.”
