UPDATE: William Shatner has now released the albums along with a rendition of Silent Night with Iggy Pop on vocals.
I’m going to be honest… the first time I heard William Shatner’s rendition of Elton John’s Rocket Man, it changed my life. The man’s voice is just so damn irresistible.
Now, this Christmas, you can enjoy Shatner’s sultry voice all through the holiday season with a new Christmas album that features such artists as Henry Rollins, Iggy Pop, Ian Anderson, and a whole stack of others.
