listen to William Shatner & Iggy Pop sing “Silent Night”
William Shatner has shared another track from his upcoming Christmas duets album, Shatner Claus. Here we get the classic “Silent Night,” with the unmistakable Shatner dramatic reading style combined with the dulcet tones of Iggy Pop. For those wishing for a punk rock reading of the holiday chesnut, your stocking will be empty, as this is a pretty reverent take…as far as Shatner interpretations go. Listen below.
Shatner Claus also features collaborations with Henry Rollins, Rick Wakeman, Todd Rundgren, Brad Paisley, Jethro Tull’s Ian Anderson, ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and more. It’s out Friday (10/26).
