* 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.

* Very strangely, CountryMusic singer Chase Bryant has released two singles that both hit the Top 10 ("Take It On Back" and "Little Bit of You"), but the label has shown absolutely zero interest in even ''trying'' to release an album from him. You'd think just putting out an album on him would be a far better return on investment than doggedly pushing his singles up the charts as long as humanly possible...

* CountryMusic singer Josh Turner's sixth studio album has been on hold due to poor single performance. Original lead single "Lay Low" petered out at #25 in late 2014-early 2015. After that, he switched producers from Frank Rogers (who had been his producer since his debut single in 2002) to Kenny Greenberg and launched "Hometown Girl" in May 2016, only to see it struggle too.

* ''Music/VioletUK'' has been in development since the early 2000s and possibly earlier. A few songs and appearances have emerged from it, enough to convince fans that ''something'' may happen someday, and an album has been being hinted at since 2007 with a promo implying a new debut in 2013. Which never happened...

* Leslie Carter (Nick and Aaron's sister) released her first single, "Like, Wow," in 2000, with the album slated to release later that year. The single even appeared on the ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'' soundtrack. Unfortunately, Creator/DreamWorks' record label folded shortly after and the complete album never saw a proper release.

* James Wesley, a CountryMusic artist. He signed with Warner Bros. in 1999 and put out two singles under his real name of James Prosser, but the corresponding album was apparently scrapped. In 2010, he signed with Broken Bow Records, charting five singles between then and 2013. Although the second and third singles were Top 40 hits ("Real" at #22 and "Didn't I" at #24), the album still failed to see release.

* Jessica Andrews was slated to release her fourth album for Creator/DreamWorks in 2005. Its singles went nowhere, and the closure of the label left her high and dry. She moved to Disney-owned Lyric Street Records and released a song titled "Everything", which also underperformed… and then got screwed over again when Lyric Street closed.
* 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 Capitol. 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.

* Music/InsaneClownPosse's side-project called Soopa Villainz, in which ICP and other Psychopathic artists portrayed comic book-type villains, has fallen into a seemingly infinite state of limbo. Their first album, "Furious," was released in 2005 to luke-warm response. (At the same time, Twiztid were meant to portray an equivalent group called Soopa Heroez, whose corresponding album never did see release.) Then, in 2006, the whole Soopa Villainz project suffered a rather large blow when former-Villainz member Esham released an album of SV's unreleased material as a free, download-only release without ICP's permission - and managed to get ICP in a heap of trouble over the scathing, appallingly homophobic track 'Slow Your Roll', which was more than likely presented out of its intended context.
** ICP eventually planned on attempting to revive the Soopa Villainz project with a trio of releases - an expanded edition of "Furious," a new album titled "The Land of the Banned," and an EP of Soopa Heroez material. NONE of this ever appeared.

* BloodhoundGang notoriously took six years to follow up their major hit album ''Hooray For Boobies'' with the relative flop ''Hefty Fine''. The follow up to that , ''Hard-Off'', would take another ten years to release, with only one new song coming out in-between, "Altogether Ooky" in the 2010 GreatestHitsAlbum ''[[PunBasedTitle Show Us Your Hits]]''.
* {{Music/Space}} had a major case of this with their third album, ''Love You More Than Football''. Originally scheduled for release in 1999, the release date was pushed back to 2000. In early 2000, a single, 'Diary Of A Wimp', was released, and a tracklisting appeared on the band's website. 'Gravity', which had been premiered on the Bad Days tour in 1998, was a potential next single (and is featured on one of the ''Greatest Hits'' albums, as is the title track). However, the album itself ended up being shelved due to clashes between the band and the record company. Fortunately, [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes some fans managed to get bootlegs of the songs]].

* Music/{{Vocaloid}} [=CV04=]. Fans rejoiced when they learned that it was the fourth product in Crypton Future Media's "Character Vocal" series. Fans rejoiced further when it was announced that he would be a ''male'' voice instead of a female one. The few fans that heard the demos rejoiced ''[[OverlyLongGag even further]]'' when it was implied that [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyI Yuuki]] [[BlackButler Kaji]] would supply the voice. The fans were incredibly annoyed when they realized that he was taking so dang ''long'' to be released and that they don't even know his real name. It's been about three years since his existence was made known and still nothing. And don't go searching for those demos either, they're long gone. Worse still, it's been announced that Vocaloid3 will be released this September and the CV series is in Vocaloid2. Unless [=CV04=] is released soon or released with Vocaloid3, he may stay this way forever.

* While both StevieNicks and Lindsey Buckingham have wanted to do a CD version of their pre-FleetwoodMac album ''Buckingham Nicks'' for over 25 years, the project has stalled mainly due to difficulty in finding usable master tapes.

2016. They released a new single titled "Comeback Kid" for Mercury Records in late 2016, but it also bombed.

* TheKovenant's ''Aria Galactica'' has been in limbo since 2003. Sort of the ''VideoGame/DukeNukemForever'' of music.

* Music/LindsayLohan's third album ''SpiritInTheDark'' was first announced back in 2008, the single "Bossy" was released and was very successful on the dance charts, but production was halted as Lindsay had decided it wasn't feasible for her to work on both her acting and singing career at the same time, numerous release dates were announced but nothing ultimately came of them due to Lindsay's own inability to decide when to work on the album, though several tracks have been leaked on to the internet over the years. It's unknown just how far along in production "Spirit" is, the album getting released depends on Lindsay getting around to finishing it, and by December 2010, when that would happen was anybody's guess.
