Mick Jagger has two new songs and associated video clips released, which he made as a response to the “stress and ongekendheid of the changes in the political situation”.

“We obviously have a lot of problems,” says the rock star at Rolling Stone. “I am politically optimistic? No.”

The number of England Lost about a lost football game, which he used an analogy for the “difficult time in our history”. “It’s about the ongekendheid of where we are and a sense of uncertainty. That I felt when I wrote it.”

Also rapper Skepta collaborated on the song. He said earlier that he and Jagger in the studio.

Also the number Get a Grip has a political charge. “But it is, above all, that people should continue with their lives, even if it is sometimes very difficult.”
