Alex Lifeson and Maiah Wynne talk Envy of None in new PROG magazine interview

Tue, Feb 1, 2022@1:39PM | comments

Alex Lifeson's Envy of None project released its first single last month via a newly-launched website at The song is titled Liar and you can listen to it via all the major streaming platforms here, or watch the official lyric video on YouTube. Envy of None consists of Lifeson, Andy Curran, guitarist Alfio Annibalini and vocalist Maiah Wynne. Fans got a taste of their music this past summer when Alex Lifeson released two instrumental tracks that the project had recorded via his official website at - Kabul Blues and Spy House - both of which are available for listening online here. They ended up recording nearly a dozen songs and have spent the last several months promoting the project and preparing the tracks for release. The latest issue of PROG magazine (issue 127) hits newsstands later this week, and includes an article featuring a short interview with Lifeson and Maiah Wynne where the pair give some background on the project and their involvement, and Wynne also addresses the project's future plans (thanks RushFanForever):

... there has been some consideration of a couple of special live shows, depending on how everyone feels. I like to think we will be making more music together and possibly another album. We put together some bonus tracks for this record at the last minute, and they turned out great. I can't wait to see how the music evolves and what we do next. It really feels like this could go any direction, and that's what makes it so exciting to me. I just love making music with these guys. ...

You can read the entire 2-page article/interview in this 13-page sampler of the issue. The band's self-titled 11-track debut album will arrive on April 8th on black, white and blue vinyl (the latter is exclusive to North America) and also on CD. A limited-edition deluxe version of the release will feature a five-track bonus CD and a 28-page booklet with exclusive content. You can check out all the available purchase options here, and follow the Project via their website, on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
