Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson has shared the first single from his new band Envy Of None, titled “Liar.”
“Liar” is the lead single from Envy of None’s upcoming self-titled debut album, which drops on April 8. The band also features singer Maiah Wynne, bassist Andy Curran and producer/engineer Alfio Annibalini.
“Maiah became my muse,” Lifeson said of the band’s sonic direction in a press release. “She was able to bring this whole new ethereal thing through her sense of melody on tracks like ‘Liar’ and ‘Look Inside.'”
“After hearing her vocals on ‘Never Said I Love You,’ I felt so excited,” he added. “I’ve never had that kind of inspiration working with another musician. When we say she’s special, it’s because she’s really f**king special!”
Added Wynne, “One of my favorite things about these songs is the intimacy of them. It makes them feel different and more honest. There are some heavier songs too, like ‘Enemy,’ and then tracks like Kabul Blues, that sound completely different to anything else.”
The album’s 11-song tracklist ends with a tribute to Lifeson’s longtime friend and bandmate, the late Neil Peart, titled “Western Sunset.”
