Here’s your first taste of William Shatner’s Christmas album.

William Shatner’s latest music project is a Christmas album. Yes, he’s Jewish, but that doesn’t mean he can’t get into the spirit of the season.

The album, Shatner Claus, features guest appearance from Iggy Pop, Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top, Artimus Pyle of Lynyrd Skynyrd and his longtime friend, Henry Rollins. The whole thing hits stores and streaming services October 26.

To get you in the mood for the Christmas season, here’s “Jingle Bells” from The Shat and Hank. (Via CoS)

BONUS: Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and Peter Buck of REM have cut a Christmas album with The Monkees. That is not a joke.
