William Shatner has revealed plans to record a cover of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody'.

The Star Trek icon suggested on Twitter that the recording could spark off sessions for a third full-length album.

Shatner said: "Going to lay down a track: 'Bohemian Rhapsody'. Perhaps as the beginning of a new record... My best, Bill."

He previously asked fellow Trek star Leonard Nimoy to join him in the project, saying: "Come out of "retirement" TheRealNimoy. I got an exciting record I’m working on. You’d be perfect to add another voice to it."

The actor released his debut album The Transformed Man in 1968 and followed it with the Ben Folds-produced Has Been in 2004.

Has Been included a cover of Pulp's 'Common People' as well as contributions from Henry Rollins, Nick Horby, Aimee Mann and Lemon Jelly.
