Gotta Get A Grip / England Lost is a double A sided single by British rock singer-songwriter and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger, released in July 2017 via Polydor Records.
Mick Jagger announced the release of two brand new songs on the day after his 74th birthday, “Gotta Get A Grip” and England Lost”. In a press statement he says the releases are urgent responses to the “anxiety, unknowability of the changing political situation.” They have been rush-released, he explains, because “I didn’t want to wait until next year when these two tracks might lose any impact and mean nothing.”
He revealed the songs were written in April 2017, presumably after the countdown to Britain’s exit from the EU began. Jagger goes onto articulate his “confusion and frustration with the times we live in.” He explains “England Lost” is “Ostensibly 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.” He sees “Gotta Get A Grip” as a corrective to all the post-Brexit doom and gloom. “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.”
The songs have received critical acclaim upon release and are the first new solo recordings released since his last solo album Goddess In The Doorway (2001).
Check out the videos for both tracks: “Gotta Get A Grip” and “England Lost”.
