William Shatner has announced the song list for his new album of 70s and 80s cover tunes, "Searching for Major Tom."

Most have a space theme, of course.

They include David Bowie's "Space Oddity," Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit in the Sky," Pink Floyd's "Learning to Fly," "Mr. Spaceman" by the Byrds and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Shatner will be backed by some pretty big deal musicians, including Zakk Wylde, Peter Frampton, Brad Paisley, and Tangerine Dream's Edgar Froese.

The record is due out later this year.
