* Jamie O'Neal had a hard time following up her first album, ''Shiver''. "Every Little Thing" was supposed to be on an album titled ''On My Way to You'', slated for a 2003 release but it flopped and she left Mercury Records in favor of Creator/CapitolRecords. The change of label got three hits off ''Brave'' between 2004 and 2006, but "God Don't Make Mistakes" went nowhere, as did two singles released in 2008-09 on a small indie label. She finally returned in 2014 with a covers album.

* Enfold Darkness saw an eight-year gap between ''Our Cursed Rapture'' and ''Adversary Omnipotent'' that can be chalked up to, among other things, [[RevolvingDoorBand an inability to keep a steady lineup]], [[ScrewedByTheNetwork label issues after Sumerian abruptly dropped them]], Greg Vance and his girlfriend both having their cars totaled within weeks of one another (and Greg's girlfriend coming out far worse than he did), and, just as they were about to ''finally'' get the damn thing recorded, [[FaithHeelTurn Matt Brown converting to Islam and leaving the band]], necessitating ''another'' member search. The fact that the album was announced and put up for preorder basically right after the mastering process was concluded can be chalked up to people being sick enough of delays to basically eliminate the need for promotion.

* Music/DecrepitBirth released their last studio album in 2010 and lost everyone except Bill Robinson and Matt Sotelo shortly after. While they have long since replaced everyone and have been touring on a semi-regular basis (usually around two or three times a year), it has been almost five years without a followup to ''Polarity'' despite having repeatedly stated that it is indeed in the works. While they did indeed debut a new song on the 2014 Summer Slaughter tour, there has been little to no word on the parent album other than that it is indeed still coming and will be a bit different stylistically. This is likely due to Matt and Samus having extremely busy personal lives (Matt has a family and owns a recording studio, Samus is working on his MBA) and having little time to write.

* Music/FaithHill has been trying to mount a comeback album since 2011, but so far, only two singles have been released: a cover of Music/OneRepublic's "Come Home" in 2011, and "American Heart" a year later. Both flopped, and the comeback went on hiatus. However, she had a Top 5 hit in 2014 backing her husband, Music/TimMcGraw, on "Meanwhile Back at Mama's".

* Bastille's second album following ''Bad Blood'' has been in this for more than a year thanks to constant delays due to touring schedules. The only album they have released since then is an expanded album of ''Bad Blood'', titled ''All This Bad Blood'', featuring songs that were not included in the original album due to time and technical limitations and were featured as B-sides from various singles. Aside from a late 2014 album of duets with other artists ("Bastille VS: Other People's Heartache"), fans are still waiting eagerly.

* Music/TobyKeith's eighteenth album, ''35 MPH Town'', was repeatedly delayed due to its singles underperforming on the charts. Lead single "Drunk Americans" both debuted and peaked at #27, while the followups didn't hit the Top 40. His next album has also been stalled due to lead single "A Few More Cowboys" bombing.

* Shortly after the première of ''Les huguenots'' in 1836, both Giacomo Meyerbeer and Eugène Scribe started to develop two further operas together. However, due to their own commitments, ''Le prophète'' did not reach the stage until 1849 and ''L'africaine'' (which for some time was titled ''Vasco da Gama'') had to wait until '''1865''' -- nearly a year after Meyerbeer's death and four after Scribe's.

* Music/HunterHayes has had a terrible time following up his first album. After his second album ''Storyline'' bombed, he released a new lead single called "21", which was supposed to lead off a third album. Its poor performance caused the song to be put on a digital-only EP titled ''The 21 Project''. A new single called "Yesterday's Song" dropped in October 2016, but as of March 2017, it ''still'' failed to reach Top 40 on the ''Billboard'' country charts.

* Music/BradPaisley's eleventh studio album, ''Love and War'', was delayed after its originally intended lead single "Without a Fight" (a duet with Music/DemiLovato) completely bombed at radio.

* Music/BradPaisley's eleventh studio album, ''Love and War'', was delayed for nearly a year after its originally intended lead single "Without a Fight" (a duet with Music/DemiLovato) completely bombed at radio. Its release date was moved up to March 2017, then again after that to April. This gave second single "Today" a wider berth.

** {{Jojo}}'s got her third album stuck in so much development hell she sued her now out-of-business record company and then proceeded to delay it to the "right time". She ended up releasing 2 mix-tapes ("Can't Take That Away From Me" and "Agape") because she does want to give her fans things and cares. All I Want Is Everything (the third album mentioned) was later retitled as "Jumping Trains" and then was retitled again.
