William Shatner's New Album

"More than 35 years after the release of his debut solo album, William Shatner teams up with Ben Folds to create Has Been, a surprisingly pop-driven, lyrically potent collection of songs written by the duo. With the exception of "Trying," co-written by Folds and novelist Nick Hornby (High Fidelity, About A Boy), "Real" by Brad Paisley, and Pulp's "Common People," Shatner proves to be a witty and self-deprecating poet, while Folds' talent for crafting the perfect pop melody has never been more evident."

Heard about this via Sam and Fuzzy. Listening to the samples and interviews on Shatner's site, the album seems really genuine. I feel really good about this; it fits. Makes me happy to see Shatner pull this off, at the right time, and in a good manner.
