Hand. Cannot. Erase. is the fourth solo studio album by English musician and composer Steven Wilson, released in February 2015 via Kscope

Known as "the king of prog rock", Steven Wilson best known as the founder, lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter of Porcupine Tree, as well as his production and audio engineering work, which he self-taught. His other projects include Bass CommunionIncredible Expanding Mindfuck (I.E.M.), and Blackfield. He has also worked with artists such as King CrimsonPendulumJethro Tull, and Anathema.

His music has received widespread acclaim. He has been nominated four times for the Grammy Awards, twice with Porcupine Tree, twice with his collaborative band Storm Corrosion, and as a soloist on one occasion. In 2015, he received three awards at the London Progressive Music Awards for his services to progressive rock.

Hand. Cannot. Erase. was recorded in September 2014 at AIR Studios, London, and according to Steven Wilson, the album is less "jazzy" compared to 2013's The Raven That Refused to Sing (And Other Stories), featuring only a few parts written for flutes and saxophones. Conceptually the album is written from a female perspective and is based on the case of Joyce Vincent, Wilson explained: "The basic story, or concept of the record – it's about a woman growing up, who goes to live in the city, very isolated, and she disappears one day and no one notices. There's more to it than that. Now, what's really interesting about this story is that your initial reaction when you hear a story like that is, 'Ah, little old bag lady that no one notices, no one cares about.' Vincent wasn't like that. She was young, she was popular, she was attractive, she had many friends, she had family, but for whatever reason, nobody missed her for three years".

The album was released to critical acclaim, The Guardian's Dom Lawson gave the album a perfect score, describing the album as "a rich musical journey with numerous moments of vivid melodic simplicity", describing Steven Wilson's work as "a modern equivalent of Pink Floyd and Genesis".

Check out the tracks "Hand Cannot Erase", "Perfect Life", and "Routine".
