Shatner 'recording Pulp song'

William Shatner is reportedly recording a cover version of a Pulp song.

The Sun says the Star Trek actor is recording a cover of Common People.

The new song is a duet with singer Joe Jackson.

Shatner's music career so far has not been too illustrious. A character in the Simpsons once claimed to have used a Star Wars gun to prevent him ever recording another album.
