The Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger has released two new songs, "Gotta Get a Grip" and "England Lost" (featuring Skepta). He has also shared videos for both songs, with the "Gotta Get a Grip" one starring Jemima Kirke (Jessa from Girls) and the "England Lost" one starring Luke Evans (Gaston from Beauty and the Beast). There's also a five-song remix EP, Gotta Get a Grip / England Lost (Reimagined), that includes remixes of "Gotta Get a Grip" by Seeb, Alok, Matt Clifford, and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker. Check out the two videos below, followed by the Kevin Parker remix.

In a press release Jagger says the two songs were urgent responses to the "confusion and frustration with the times we live in," adding that they were a result of "anxiety, unknowability of the changing political situation."

Of "England Lost" Jagger says: "Ostensibly, it's about seeing an England football team lose, but when I wrote the title I knew it would be about more than just that. It's about a feeling that we are in a difficult moment in our history. It's about the unknowability about where you are and the feeling of insecurity. That's how I was feeling when I was writing. It's obviously got a fair amount of humor because I don't like anything too on the nose but it's also got a sense of vulnerability of where we are as a country."

Jagger had this to say about "Gotta Get A Grip": "The message I suppose is - despite all those things that are happening, you gotta get on with your own life, be yourself and attempt to create your own destiny."
