Prepare for a new album by William Shatner

William Shatner is 90 years old but has zero intention of slowing down. He appeared in a movie earlier this year called Senior Moment

…and is preparing to release what’s described as an “autobiographical” album entitled Bill.

I quote from a statement:

“Through a series of phone calls, texts, and emails, music and words flew back and forth across the country. The [Covid-19] crisis created an urgency and quickly unleashed a candor between us that allowed us to peel back layers that sat on the surface of a subject to reveal the depth of truth buried underneath. What better time to contemplate life’s biggest questions than during a global pandemic? Some songs touched on painful or beautiful moments, while others turned into elliptical philosophical explorations about the very nature of existence and death.”

Check out the tracklisting and the guest appearances:

  1. “I Ride”
  2. “Made In The Shade” feat. Joe Walsh
  3. “Clouds of Guilt” feat. Joe Jonas
