5 Christmas albums you should check out this year 2. Shatner Claus: The Christmas Album - William Shatner
Also in October, Captain Kirk put out his first Christmas album! Hilariously titled 'Shatner Claus: The Christmas Album', the 87-year-old actor teamed up with a string of collaborators such as ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, who guests on 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer' and Todd Rundgren, who appears alongside Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Artimus Pyle on 'Winter Wonderland'. Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson and Judy Collins guest star on 'White Christmas', and Brad Paisley features on 'Blue Christmas'. Perhaps the unlikeliest collaboration comes in the form of Iggy Pop, who lends his signature baritone voice to an eerie rendition of 'Silent Night'. The album dropped October 26 via Cleopatra Records.
