New sonic impulses…
MICK JAGGER turned 74 two days ago and just now he launched two new solo tracks. Both politically outspoken and musically top! The big Rolling Stone mouth writes, sounds, acts and performs like a reborn 60s system protester and social observer. Who the fuck is Mick Jagger? An old, wise, legendary rocker growing old in inspiring style. Message for all young bands and youngsters in general: take notes and question the bad guys 24/7, you know, the ones in charge, the political leaders. Don’t let them rule YOU and your future!…
1/ GOTTA GET A GRIP
About the inflammable state of this troubled planet. Grooves like hell! Top stroke!
What Jagger says: “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.”
2/ England Lost
The title speaks for itself. Funkier and bluesier than the other with a brill rap by Skepta!
What Jagger says: “Right from the off when I started writing England Lost, I imagined having a British rapper on the track. Skepta stepped in at a moments notice and I just loved what he did.”
