(Written by Belinda O’Hooley, then of the Winterset: ‘There was a blackbird living in my garden who would sing the same little tune all day, and I wondered what he was saying. This inspired me to look at why we sing – and the emotions we communicate in song. I wrote ‘Blackbird’ with Becky [Unthank] in mind as I think the song suits her voice.’)
