William Shatner is working on a new album. This will be Shatner's fourth album, believe it or not. I feel kind of bad (not really) I haven't listened to his first three.

His latest effort is titles "Seeking Major Tom" and actually has a semi star studded cast of players.  Sheryl Crow, Richie Blackmore, Peter Frampton, and Zakk Wylde are just a few of the musicians Shatner somehow talked into working on his album. If fact, Zakk Wylde laid down the guitar tracks for this song Shatner is working on in the video.

The funny part of the video is when Shatner is trying to hit the high notes by screaming into the microphone.  I guess you have to give him credit for trying but in this instance, nope, I don't think so. Watch and (try) listen for yourself.
