Jack Beats are set to release the first in a series of mini albums on 10th September. Entitled ‘Careless,’ the first mini album will feature previous Leonard Cohen-sampling single “End Of Love” as well as a guest appearances from Diplo and Example on the track “War.” Of the mini album releases, Niall and Ben said: “We’ve been working on our album for a long time, and we’ve written a lot of diverse tracks which we feel work better split up over 2 mini albums. It feels a more contemporary and exciting approach to releasing dance music than the traditional album format- removing limitations, and allowing all the music to get proper attention.”

The full tracklisting for ‘Careless’ is:
Careless ft. Takura
War ft. Diplo & Example
Epidemic ft. Dillon Francis
End of Love (re edit)
Fast Girls ft. MNEK
Bonus tracks:
Careless ft. Takura Instrumental
War ft. Diplo & Example Instrumental
Fast Girls ft. MNEK (Instrumental)
