Former Star Trek actor William Shatner is preparing to release a new album
of country and rock tracks.
The Canadian-born screen star has just finished months of recording his
untitled release in Nashville, Tennessee, which he hopes to unleash on fans in
the summer (04).
He says of the album, "It's sort of eclectic. I wrote material based on my
life and worked with Ben Folds, who produced and wrote the music.
"What he's done is so extraordinary - from Joe Jackson and I doing rock
and roll to Henry Rollins and I screaming at each other."
