Stream: William Shatner – Seeking Major Tom

William Shatner’s double-disc, “space-themed” covers album, Seeking Major Tom, arrives this coming Tuesday, October 11th via Celopatra. On it, our favorite Star Trek captain turned Priceline pitchman gives his trademark spoken word treatment to classic, intergalactic anthems from the likes of David Bowie, U2, Queen, Pink Floyd, The Police, and more. He also managed to snag the talents of Zack Wylde, Sheryl Crow, The Strokes’ Nick Valensi, Peter Frampton, Bootsy Collins, and The Kinks’ Dave Davies, among others, to assist in the actual musical accompaniment. At the very least, you’re bound to be intrigued at hearing this thing, which you can now do at SoundCloud. Seriously, enjoy.
