Star Trek star William Shatner’s next music album, Ponder The Mystery, is expected out Oct. 8, his official website shows.
Far out, man. Shatner wrote the lyrics and beamed aboard musicians for the prog-rock project, including guitarist Steve Vai, Mick Jones of Foreigner, Rick Wakeman of Yes, Simon House and Nik Turner of Hawkwind, Edgar Froese of Tangerine Dream, Latin and jazz musician Al Di Meola and more, according to a media release.
The album probes “aging, depression, love and beauty.” So, art imitates art? To quote Captain Kirk, “Beauty survives.” Not with Shatner’s music canon, get thyself to the interwebs and search Shatner and “Major Tom,” or “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.”
