The March, 2022 issue of Guitar World magazine includes a new interview with Rush's Alex Lifeson where he talks about his new signature Epiphone Les Paul Standard Axcess, his Envy of None project, and the likelihood of working with Geddy Lee again (thanks RushFanForever):

... As for making new music with his Rush band mate, Geddy Lee, one of these days, Lifeson says the door is always open, though neither of them are planning to walk through it any time soon. "We're not putting any pressure on it or anything," Lifeson says. "We had a lot of good years together and we still love each other very much. I talk to Geddy every other day - we're best friends. There's more to our life together than just writing music. So if it happens, it happens. And it'll happen when it happens."

The parts of the interview about the Envy of None project are a bit outdated, as it was conducted before last week's album release announcement and debut of their first single Liar.
