Ewan McGregor covers Catfish and the Bottlemen – watch


Catfish and the Bottlemen have released a video of actor Ewan McGregor covering their current single, ‘Hourglass.’

This follows on from McGregor’s appearance in the band’s official video for the song, in which he performs an acoustic rendition of the track. This new release features McGregor’s full length cover of ‘Hourglass.’

Van McCann, the band’s frontman, commented about teaming up with McGregor saying: “Honestly working with Sir Ewan was one of the funnest things I think I’ll ever get to do. He’s the most interesting and interested guy I’ve ever met.

McCann added: “He’s just fucking brilliant. Total gentleman! When people tell you not to meet the people you look up to, fuck that! He genuinely buzzes off the band. Sends me photos of him listening to us before he walks onstage on his endless run of sold out Broadway. And he likes my lyrics! Honestly, I love him. It all makes me laugh my head off!

‘Hourglass’ is the latest release from the band’s debut album, The Balcony, which was released in September. The band will also be embarking on a UK tour in October, which includes a date at Southampton’s Guildhall on 12th November.
