Christmas has come early for anyone hoping to hear a track from Star Trek star William Shatner’s recently-announced holiday album, as a cover of the Christmas classic “Jingle Bells” featuring punk icon Henry Rollins is now available.

The Star Trek actor shared a link to the first track from his upcoming Christmas album on Thursday, tweeting, “Apparently one of the songs from Shatner Claus is available. Have a little listen.” The link takes fans to the song on Soundcloud.

The song in question is a wildly unique interpretation of “Jingle Bells” and features Rollins, former frontman for punk band Black Flag.

The record will be Shatner’s 10th studio album, and his first Christmas record.
