Oldest trick in the book: As James drives up to the woman, another of his friends in the car changes the music to You're Beautiful

His two female companions in the car then decide to change the stereo of the vehicle to play You're Beautiful in a bid to help James seduce the stunning brunette.

However, James told MailOnline that the scene was actually only included at the last minute after he met the woman the day before the video shoot.

He said: 'Look out for the girl walking past in the middle of the video - she was a journalist who'd interviewed me the day before. I'd asked if she'd like to be in the video, but the director said there was no space for her in the script.

'So we decided to just stop the video halfway through and have her walk past to the tune of You're Beautiful.'

And in the video, the ploy definitely works, as James is then seen dancing with the girl on stage while belting out the catchy track at a party.

Postcards is the second single from James' fourth studio album Moon Landing, and is due for release on May 19th.

Things take a messy turn when the trio pick up some ice-cream sandwiches, which quickly turn into a melted mess on the top of the car.

Postcards is due for release on 19th May.
