Exempt from Gravity and Anja Mark Jensen info:
Exempt from Gravity AKA Claus contacted me through my YouTube channel
asking me if I would let him use my film 'Blackbird Singing in the Dead of Evening'.
To back a project he was working on with vocalist Anja Mark Jensen, a cover of the Beatles number Blackbird from the double LP The White Album.
The original song is mixed with field recordings of a blackbird singing. For the cover version Claus wanted to use the soundtrack of my evensong video.
This has always been a favourite song of mine from a very special album that is still in the top ten best selling albums of all-time, I was only too happy to oblige.
