    "Steer" is the first single from Missy Higgins' second album On a Clear Night. The song was released in Australia on 14 April 2007 and became #1 most added track in that same week. The CD single achieved the #1 spot on the Australian Singles Chart in the first week of its CD release. It is Higgins' second #1 single, her first being her debut single "Scar" from her first album The Sound of White. Higgins stated that the song was "about steers" and that she wrote it after overlooking the entire Southern Celestial Sphere from a bay in Western Australia. The song has a clean, upbeat feel with vocals that ascend into many high-pitched lyrics. It has instrument backings of acoustic guitar and drums. The song is available to listen to at the website of Sydney newspaper The Daily Telegraph. In March 2007, Higgins gave fans the exclusive opportunity to pre-order a personally signed copy of her single 'Steer' via SMS.
