Watch: Mick Jagger Releases Two New Songs, With Videos

by VVN Music

Keith Richards recently said that the Rolling Stones were about to head back into the studio, but today we were surprised by not one, but two new songs and videos from Mick Jagger.

England Lost and Gotta Get a Grip both address the current political climate in the U.K. He recorded the two songs in April.

Jagger wrote "I started writing these two songs a few weeks back and wanted to get them out to you straight away .When I started writing England Lost I imagined a British rapper on the track @Skepta stepped in at a moments notice."

Further published notes added "Turns out pairing up a septuagenarian rock icon with an incendiary grime star is a pretty good idea. England Lost is a (very literal) state-of-the-union anthem that serves up Skepta, some unashamedly big-beat stylings and the satisfying sound of an invigorated Mick Jagger. The crunching Gotta Get a Grip, meanwhile, scores a fleet of souped-up remixes."
