Set phasers to jolly. 

The legendary actor and musician William Shatner is giving us another reason to be excited about the holiday season. Shatner tweeted the Amazon link to pre-order his first upcoming record: Shatner Claus: The Christmas Album. You can add the self-described godfather of dramatic musical interpretation's album digital audio, CD, or vinyl in your letter to the North Pole. With vinyl record sales on the constant rise, it's exciting to see if this will find Shatner Claus' sleigh riding its way to the top of the Billboard charts.

The track list includes such classics as "Jingle Bells," "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," and "Feliz Navidad." Shatner has enlisted stellar musicians to back him up. Expect to hear Henry Rollins, Billy Gibbons, Judy Collins, Brad Paisley, Rick Wakeman, Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren, Joe Louis Walker, and more of Santa's favorite performers.

Do you think this will live up to Shatner's previous cover albums like Seeking Major Tom and Has Been ⸺ or will this be a lump of coal in our stockings? Beam up your comments below!
