The 82-year old William Shatner has released his 4th LP, Ponder the Mystery.
The concept album is supported by a number of guest including former members of the band Yes — Tony Kaye, Billy Sherwood and Rick Wakeman. Nik Turner, formerly of Hawkwind, was also involved.
Shatner has described the concept as revolving around "a guy in despair who is living on a beach, and it takes him through the last hour of the day at sunset through twilight, into darkness and the sounds of the night in which he regains his fervor, his love of life based on the beauty of what he's seeing around him."
Shatner wrote all the lyrics for the piece then handed them off to Sherwood, who composed the music.

1. "Red Shift"
