Featuring songs recorded between 2002-2015, 'Transience' is a personally curated introduction to the more accessible side of Steven Wilson's monumental solo output. The album contains 14 tracks and totals over 1 hour of music, 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 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, 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.
