|Mick Jagger Gotta Get a Grip Limited 180gram 12 Inch Vinyl Single
Mick Jagger is doing a state of the nation address – via two brand new tracks rush released this week. The songs, 'Gotta Get A Grip' and ‘England Lost' were urgent responses to what he calls ‘confusion and frustration with the times we live in.’
Mick says the songs were a result of "anxiety, unknowability of the changing political situation". He delivers a biting personal commentary across the two songs atop guitar drones and emphatic beats as he touches on everything from aggressive news cycles to holding those in power to account.
‘England Lost’ takes us back to a football match that he attended and uses the moment as an analogy for a country at a political crossroads. ‘Gotta Get A Grip’ takes us with him as he rattles issues of war and political scandal around in his mind and defiantly spits them out.
This is sound tracking a moment in time, the way only Jagger knows how and the result is electric, disruptive and thought provoking.
