Newest release! 
"Narrow is the Road” is the third full-length studio album by Compassionizer, avant prog project by musicians from Russia and Germany. This opus emphasizes the chamber and acoustic sides of Compassionizer, although both electronic and ethnic components still present! The album features various instruments including not only synths and guitars but also bass clarinet, clarinet, trumpet, violin, flute, tbilat, doira, rubab, kalimba, vibraphone, marimba, etc.
If you like non-trivial atmospheric and sophisticated hard-to-define instrumental music that "Narrow is the Road" can be your cup of tea!
This album is about the importance of choosing the right road and the consequences of such a choice, as well as the constraints associated with it. Some roads may be wrong and some consequences tragic. It is terrible when it seems that it is impossible to alleviate someone's suffering and stop obvious evil. However, if you try to help those who happen to be near you and try to think independently, there is hope that you will find the right road.

All revenues from sales will go to the financial support of one of the families of Ukrainian refugees living in Hamburg, Germany.

The album can be listened to and purchased here:

Listened to the album on bandcamp and, indeed, it sounds really good. Do you know if their will be a physical release (cd/lp)?

So far as I know, physical release - on CD - should be; but in the future. Now only two previous albums of Compassionizer - "Caress of Compassion" (2020) and "An Ambassador in Bonds" (2021) - are available on CD. BTW, both albums are among PA Top 20 albums.
