James Blunt Claims The Rolling Stones ‘Are Still Looking’ For A Hit As Big As ‘You’re Beautiful’

James Blunt believes he’s hit at least one milestone the Rolling Stones have yet to reach.

In a new interview with Esquire, the 45-year-old musician made the curious comparison between himself and the legendary rock band when discussing his 2005 single “You’re Beautiful”.

“I think most musicians and bands are searching for that one big hit,” Blunt said. “You know, I think the Rolling Stones are still looking and, and I’m just lucky enough to have it out there right now, at the top of my career.”

The singer also talked about the benefit of having a hit as big as “You’re Beautiful” early in his career.

“It keeps you pretty well grounded,” Blunt explained. “Someone can say, ‘Hey, that song is just a massive smash,’ and yet, in America or in let’s say, France, that’s always just a myth… It means you can take nothing for granted.”
