New Jagger solo tracks

  • July 7, 2017 at 6:38 am #68895

    According to some recent social media posts a new Jagger music video was shot in London this week, apparently titled “Gotta Get a Grip”

    ^^^^^^^^ Wow, Jagger’s people are quick to get these Instagram things deleted. Perhaps the dancers, etc. should read the fine print!

    I’m looking forward to all kinds of Stones releases, but Bill is the grip guy


    Don't you think it's sometimes wise not to grow up?

    So, I get home from a beautiful dinner out – to find THIS. Jagger is also working with Skepta, a hip-hop/grime artist. If anyone has anything to add…….please do so. I’m fresh outta ideas and thoughts. God only knows what Keith is thinking/saying/laughing/crying.

    What I gather so far is: 1. Jagger has a solo record coming out on 21st July. 2. It has two songs – Gotta Get A Grip & England Lost. 3. It looks like Jagger has shot videos for one/both tunes. 4. Then, the Stones go on tour in Europe. 

    For the sake of clarity, please add whatever you know. I’m completely out of it. This Jagger solo thing (read – piece of crap/nothing) has put a spanner in the works.

    Thanks ~CE 💀

    ETA: And if you’re at all like me and you don’t know who Skepta is – here’s his song called No Security:

    Boy, what to make of this?

    Looks like a typical Jagger thing, in terms of trying to get in on the latest trend with the kids.

    To that end, at least Skepta has some more “cool” bona fides than say, the latest pop tart, dance producer etc.

    Skepta and grime (which is really just the latest generation of UK hip hop acts) have been getting notice as being just about the only halfway authentic top 40 chart music in the especially pre-fab era we find ourselves in.  In the last year, the bandwagon of rock acts trying to gain relevance by association with a grime artist was getting pretty full even before this development. It would have been cooler if Jagger did this a year or two ago.

    My guess is it the song (s) will be some kind of cross between a standard grime production and, say High Wire, or Sweet Neo Con, or some of Jagger’s latter day attempts at political commentary. Hopefully it has a decent hook.

    A lot of times in the Vegas era, a Jagger solo venture (and Keith solo for that matter — Crosseyed Heart cleared the way for Blue & Lonesome) served to get whatever whims he had out of the way and clear the decks for a Stones project, so perhaps that’s the case here –

    Something that wouldn’t fit on the Stones project so it’s being offloaded first.  Or maybe the Stones thing went nowhere, who knows?

    If it gives Jagger something to say in interviews so he can project the image of being a vital artist, before trotting out the greatest hits setlist (with the token post 1981 song) for a couple a weeks, then what the hell. Jagger’s earned that right, I guess.

    Is it just the two songs? I saw this:

    “Mick Jagger recording with Skepta in London studio.”

    I think I get it now. Skepta is “stopping the fuckery”:

    NO! Jagger just tweeted Dogshit In The Doorway. Is he hinting at a full album of Rap?

    Release date is 21st July for Europe and (I think ) 28th July for North America.

    thrilled to bits that the Jagger haters are nervous….I hope he gives us something to jump up and down about….anticipating a solid release.

    I can already hear him enunciating Got-tah Get Ah Grip. Frankly, I’m tickled.

    art work is out.

    At this point, even after all this band has put me through  😛 I still have a moment where I think “maybe THIS ones gonna awesome”. I’m gonna try and hold on to that feeling.

    ^^^^^^ Andrew, I LOVE when you say “after all this band has put me through”. My feelings exactly. I often wonder if they have the slightest notion of what we’ve all been “put through”.

    POSSIBLE lyrics which I blatantly ripped off from IORR:

    Gotta get a grip
    Beat em with a stick
    Shoot em from the hip

    The world is upside down
    Led by lunatics and clowns
    No one speaks the truth
    And the madhouse runs the town

    Well you gotta get a grip
    Gotta get a grip

    Everybody stuffing their pockets
    Everybody’s on the take
    The news is all fake
    Let em eat chicken and let em eat steak
    Let em eat shit and let em eat cake

    Gotta get a grip
    Gotta keep it zipped
    Shoot em from the hip

    Gotta get a grip
    Beat em with a stick

    I tried diversion
    And I tried coercion
    Meditation and medication
    LA culture and aquapuncture
    Over eating and sexy meetings
    Induced insanity and Christianity
    Long walks and fast drives
    And wild clubs and low dives

    But I can’t get you out of my mind
    I can’t get you out of my mind

    Immigrants are pouring in
    Refugees under your skin
    Keep them under, keep them out
    Intellectuals, shut your mouth

    Beat em with a stick

    Chaos crisis, instability, Isis
    Lies and scandals, wars and vandals
    Metadata scams and policy shams
    Put them in the slammer

    Gotta get a grip

    EDIT: I guess CE posted the maybe lyrics as I was writing this post. I was kinda close.


    I will say I like the title. It has a good staccato rhythm when you say it. It’s got possibilities.

    My guess it’s that’s akin to High Wire or Doom N Gloom, (or even Might As Well Get Juiced) in that the subject matter will be “all this crazy stuff going on in the world…gotta get a grip”. Then he’ll describe an antidote to the craziness which is either

    a) go out dancing

    b) kiss her lips

    c) abandon ship

    Or I could be completely wrong.

    EDIT: looks like it was

    d) beat em with a stick

    Totally confused here. Is Skepta on this record?
