William Shatner

07:50 PM | William Shatner is No Has Been! | William Shatner is more than just a B list celebrity and sci fi hero, he is a pop sensation, well maybe not yet. The famed “over-acting”, Captain Kirk playing icon will be releasing an album entitled Has Been October 5 2004. It “has been” 35 years since he released his debut album. Shatner teams up with Ben Folds for this surprisingly pop driven collection of songs. The songs penned by Shatner, 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. The music crafted by Folds and witty and self-deprecating lyrics of Bill Shatner make for a pleasantly poppy listen. Has Been also includes guests such as Aimee Mann, Joe Jackson, Brad Paisley, Henry Rollins, Adrian Belew and more! Shout! Factory and Special Ops Media are offering a preview of “Common People” of the album. Here are the samples conveniantly in the form of your choosing. Quicktime Windows Media Assets
