Description

Featuring songs recorded between 2002- 2015, 'Transience' is a personally curated introduction to the more accessible side of Steven Wilson's monumental solo output.

Available in a CD sleevepack 'Transience' contains 14 tracks and totals over 1 hour of music, with this CD version including a bonus track "Happiness III".

As a self confessed lover of pop music; 'Transience' serves to showcase Steven's more traditional songwriting skills and an opportunity to re-contextualise some historic tracks, not confined by the concept album framework. Originally released on limited edition vinyl in September 2015 Transience shot straight to #3 in the UK vinyl charts and made history by
making Steven Wilson the first artist to chart solely on vinyl sales this century.

Steven Wilson's previous studio album 'Hand. Cannot. Erase.' in 2015 was a worldwide monumental commercial and critical success, gaining his highest chart positions - USA #39 Billboard Top 200, Canada #24, UK #13, Germany #3, Netherlands #2 & Finland #4 in national album charts, as well garnering a plethora of 5 star reviews. The albums achievements were recognised when Steven Wilson went on to win an unprecedented three PROG Awards: Album of the Year, Box Set Design, and Commercial Breakthrough.

'Transience' is an essential introduction to an essential artist.

Steven Wilson is due to appear at various Festivals in Europe over the summer before embarking on a tour of Australia, New Zealand and is due to return to North America in November.

Press Quotes

"For those who haven't heard much of him and who relish the verdant sonic luxuries of progressive rock on vinyl, Transience would be a lovely place to start" (8/10)

Classic Rock

"Wilson's genius, only seems to deepen with each release"

Prog Magazine

"An excellent entry point into Wilson's total reinvigoration of the contemporary progressive scene"

Record Collector

"The brilliant sequencing of the tracks – largely taken from sprawling concept albums – makes this a uniquely compulsive listen" (5/5)
