LOS ANGELES, Sept. 20 (UPI) -- U.S. actor William Shatner, former star of "Star Trek" and "T.J. Hooker" will have an album entitled "Has Been" released Oct. 4.

XFM.com reported Monday the album includes a cover version of Pulp's "Common People" with Shatner doing a duet with 1980s singer songwriter Joe Jackson.

Also included in the album are the song "Trying" performed by Shatner, Ben Folds and alternative rock singer Aimee Mann, and a track called "I Can't Get Behind That" sung with Henry Rollins, XFM.com said.

"It is a great record and it is really worth going out and doing some shows in major cities," Folds told Billboard. Shatner was "not a musician at all. But he is still part of the music. I've never heard a record quite like it."
