Ben Folds & Star Trek's Shatner Team Up

Published: 2004-06-24
Ben Folds has pushed his album project back a bit because he found something more important - at least to him - to work on; William Shatner's new album "Has Been". The former Captain Kirk has given up the Enterprise and has turned his attention to music. Folds believes that the project is worth something; even to the point of taking music from the album on tour. Folds says that Shatner is not a musician and even though Shatner is not singing or rapping the songs, he is still a part of the music.

Shatner's album "Has Been" is set for release some time in September.

As for Ben Folds, he is currently on the road with Rufus Wainwright and Guster. Once the tour is over Folds will return home to finish working on his own album. The new release doesn't have a title at present because Folds said that it doesn't feel like an album yet. Look for Folds new album early next year. But in the meantime; Folds will have a new EP - his third - coming out in a few weeks. Folds said that he loves making EPs and expects all of his non album material to end up as a cheap box set of EPs.
