WILLIAM SHATNER has decided to bless us once again with the gift of his musical genius. And what better time to receive a blessing than Christmas? The Shat is dropping a holiday album called “Shatner Claus” on October 26th.
His guests include Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren, Billy Gibbons from ZZ Top, Judy Collins, Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, country star Brad Paisley, Yes keyboard genius Rick Wakeman, and more. (Here’s the track list.)
And the good news doesn’t end there: The first single is already here!
It’s “Jingle Bells (Punk Rock Version)“, featuring Henry Rollins.
Rollins also appeared on Shatner’s brilliant 2004 album “Has Been”, on a track called “I Can’t Get Behind That”.
(Warning: That song contains the word “ass” at the very end.)
