Canadian pop-rock group, led by husband-and-wife team Ken and Roberta Harrison, are set to release their new album Vesper 50 in early 2017.

Initially, set to be released this year, the band announced on their Facebook page on Dec. 10, that they have finished mastering the record.

"Hope to get it up on all the usual digital sites early in the new year," wrote Roberta Harrison. "We're not sure if it's worth pressing CDs, as so few people seem to use them anymore, but are considering a run of vinyl."

Earlier this year, Popjournalism caught up with Roberta in a feature interview, where she described the new album's sound.

“It’s pretty introspective,” she said. “Lyrically, it’s quite beautiful and now we just have to get it out there. It’ll probably be a pretty low key release.”
