Bet this is a pairing you didn’t see coming, unless of course you noticed this photo earlier in the month. Following his 74th birthday, the legendary Mick Jagger decided to bless his fans with a gift — well three, actually — in the form of a trio of releases. In addition to two new songs and their videos, the Rolling Stones singer unleashed a fresh remix with Skepta.
“Right from the off when I started writing ‘England Lost,’ I imagined having a British rapper on the track,” Jagger disclosed. “Skepta stepped in at a moment’s notice, and I just loved what he did.”
Mick then went on to add during an interview with Zane Lowe, in reference to the famed grime artist, “He really wants to get the best out of himself. He’s quite serious in some ways, but funny.”
You can enjoy the intriguing collaboration from Mick Jagger and Skepta above, then see underneath for Jagger’s additional drops of “Gotta Get a Grip” and the original “England Lost.”
Earlier this month Skepta released his new song, “Hypocrisy,” which you can stream below.
