Ewan McGregor sings again!

It's a long time since Moulin Rouge, but Ewan McGregor is finally flexing his vocal cords again.

The world's second-best Obi-Wan Kenobi pops up in the new video by Catfish and the Bottleman - after the band staged a somewhat creepy campaign to get his attention.

Singer Van McCann stitched together a three-minute montage of McGregor's smiling face to soundtrack the song Kathleen - and sent it to him; while while drummer Bob Hall played a tour with McGregor's picture on his drum skin.

Incredibly, the Scottish star was more flattered than frightened - and subsequently became a fan of the Bottlemen's scrappy, infectious rock ditties.

And so, he agreed to star in the video for Hourglass - even singing the song a capella in his hotel room. Rock and Roll, eh kids?

"Working with Sir Ewan was one of the funnest things I think I'll ever get to do," said McCann. "When people tell you not to meet the people you look up to, fuck that. Videos for us are hard, as we've got Austin Powers heads, but this was just a fucking class craic."

Here is the video in all its six-minute glory.
