Just Jack returns with a brand new EP, his first official release since 2009’s ‘All Night Cinema’. ‘Life Lessons’ is released on Rocket Records, with lead single ‘Alchemist’ having its 1st spin on Elton John’s ‘Rocket Hour’ Beats 1 Radio show.
Frequent collaborator Jon Cox contributed to the writing process, with various friends sporadically dropping by to play instruments. Jack’s daughter would often crash through the door in the middle of a vocal take, which leant a certain unpredictability to proceedings. The subject matter of Jack’s lyrics has matured with him over the years. Opening track ‘Alchemist’ is a song “about trying to a good dad.” Jack says of the recording: “It was great having full control over how the songs sound, and not feeling any pressure to follow a stylistic path.”
