Just Jack has announced his return to the scene, confirming a 2016 release of his Life Lessons EP.
The project, Jack’s first body of work since his 2012 collection Rough/Ready has been preceded by a new instrumental-led mixtape, Fred Beats.
Sharing Fred Beats on his official Music Glue channel earlier in the week, the musician states that mixtape was a result of the tragic passing of his father-in-law earlier this year – “I was given a box of vinyl that had been gathering dust in [Jack’s father-in-law’s] flat. I had the idea to make a series of tracks using only samples taken from these records (plus some synth bits and vocal snippets) with no preconceived ideas or external pressures. The best ones became Fred Beats.”
