Circle... the... date

I sure can't wait until October 5! That's when William Shatner--with help from Ben Folds--will release Has Been, the long-awaited follow-up to his 1968 classic Transformed Man, which featured his hilarious rendition of "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds."

From the amusing press release:
Shatner’s performances are stunning. His rendition of “Trying” is downright heartbreaking, as he depicts an absent father’s desperate attempt at building a relationship with his daughter long after it’s too late. His own droll way with prose makes a splash on “Common People,” in what could be an ode to a certain girl with a famous last name. And the album’s title track is a playful romp -- a spaghetti western score with Shatner embracing the lyrics, “Has Been.”
Based on that, I'm sold. And the fact that Shatner duets with Henry Rollins on one of the tracks.
