Alex Lifeson Confirms He Has Done An Album’s Worth Of Material With Andy Curran To Be Released Soon
During an interview with Sweet Water as a part of Gear Fest, Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson talked about his latest singles entitled ‘Kabul Blues’ and ‘Spy House’ and also announced his upcoming project ‘Envy of None’ with former Coney Hatch bassist Andy Curran.
Alex Lifeson hasn’t released any new materials since the release of Rush’s final studio album ‘Clockwork Angels’ on June 12, 2012. The long waiting of the fans ended when Lifeson released his brand new singles ‘Kabul Blues’ and ‘Spy House’ on June 15, 2021. He teamed up with Andy Curran as the bassist and David Steinberg as the drummer.
Recently, Lifeson revealed that the collaboration between him and Curran started four years ago while he was sharing the details about his upcoming project. Curran wanted to add Lifeson’s guitar performances to his recordings and they decided to release their works as a new project entitled ‘Envy of None’ when they started to work with singer Maiah Wynne.
In his recent interview, Alex Lifeson confirmed that his upcoming album ‘Envy of None’ along with Andy Curran is ready to be released very soon. He mentioned that they finished recording the album and they are currently working on the mixing. Seemingly, they planed to release the album either at the end of this summer or this fall. Lifeson also stated that they are very excited to share their new materials.
In Lifeson’s words, he said:
“Andy approached me about four years ago, shortly after the last Rush tour, about just adding some guitar on some of the things that he was doing. And I did that. A few months later, he sent another one and did that. And then we started getting more serious.
And then we found a great singer, Maiah Wynne, from Portland, Oregon — just a fabulous, fabulous voice and a really smart songwriter and vocal performer. So we’ve basically done an album’s worth of material that we hope to release sometime soon. I’m really excited about that.
We’re just working on that part of it. All the music is recorded. We are mixing currently. We’re in a good place, but it’s very challenging. The industry is so, so very different than it was certainly 10 years ago, never mind last year. We’ll see. Hopefully late summer, early fall we might have something. But we are very, very excited about it. It’s pretty cool stuff, I think.”
