Steven Wilson has released a teaser trailer for new album Hand. Cannot. Erase.
The clip is accompanied by haunting blog entries ‘written by’ the album’s lead character, a reclusive artist.
One cryptic blog entry reads: “Recently I’ve been haunting myself. A few days ago I woke up some time in the middle of the night, but didn’t open my eyes for a long time, just lay there listening to the rain on the window. When I did open my eyes I was standing at the end of the bed just watching.
“Then I leaned over and handed myself an envelope with the words ‘A List of Betrayals’ written on the front. I haven’t had the courage to open it yet.”
