82-year-old William Shatner isn’t just known for his work on Star Trek, or his rather recent appearances in Priceline commercials. The man can now be iknown for his music prowess releasing his second album.
This isn’t the first time the Star Trek man took to the studio. He surprised and I guess you could say startled his fans on his 1968 debut album, “The Transformed Man.” He even recorded his own version of, “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” for that premiere record.
Check out Shatner’s version of “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” here.
It’s been quite some time since his first release, but his most recent album will be released in just a few days on Monday, Oct. 8. This marks Shatner’s fifth studio album.
The newest album, “Ponder the Mystery” will be a prog-rock sounding album with help from Billy Sherwood of the band Yes. It’s not just Sherwood helping out with this album. Robby Krieger of the Doors and country superstar, Vince Gill will be making an appearance on the latest album as well.
The album will be performed live with a backup band. Check out the track listing below.
