Alex Lifeson's Envy of None project with Andy Curran, guitarist Alfio Annibalini and vocalist Maiah Wynne released their self-titled, debut album today, and it's currently available for purchase and streaming worldwide via several different online retailers and services, including Amazon and the official Envy of None merch store. However, there is a delay with the vinyl release in the US and Canada due to supply chain issues as outlined in this social media post from the project earlier this week:

For our fans in the US & Canada, we unfortunately have a slight delay in the VINYL due to manufacturing delays. The vinyl release date in US/CA record stores is now looking to be pushed back several weeks into early May. Vinyl for the rest of the world, as well as the CD, Digital and all formats through Kscope & the band webstores are all still good for this Friday, April 8th. Thank you for your patience and we will keep you posted!

The album is available on CD, and black, white and blue vinyl (the latter is exclusive to North America), along with a limited-edition deluxe version featuring a five-track bonus CD and a 28-page booklet with exclusive content. They are also offering via their official merch store a personal, 30-minute Zoom Hangout call with the band for yourself and 3 friends, along with an autographed Limited Edition 7" single. Each of the 10 available slots costs $1000, with all proceeds going to UNHCR's Ukraine emergency response, with the single expected to ship out in July. For all the details and to secure a slot, visit the official Envy of None merch store. You can also purchase the LE 7-inch single separately for $50 ($100 for an autographed copy) with the funds also going to UNHCR.
