* The most recent one of TheNewTens are Music/WuTangClan's (in)famous ''Once Upon a Time in Shaolin'', a double album the group worked on from 2007-2014, but actually had been worked on since ''1992'' by [[AscendedFanboy Cilvaringz]], an aspiring producer and close associate with RZA. In 2015, RZA and Cilvaringz planned to have the album be released in ''one copy'' for auction and RZA enforced a '''[[SerialEscalation 88 year ban]]''' for it to never be profited and only to be heard by the buyer. Things became more controversial when the album was bought for $2 million by controversial figure [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Martin Shkreli]], while Shkreli has shown interest in [[HopeSpot leaking it if people really want to hear it]], it's unknown if he will.
** It became a lot more complicated when [[https://m.reddit.com/r/hiphopheads/comments/2y0mwl/the_truth_behind_the_new_wutang_album/ there have been a slew of other controversial matters regarding it]], including most of the members (excluding RZA) ''barely have heard it'', with not just fans being screwed over by the decision.

Even ''more'' so is the infamous controversy surrounding [[https://www.reddit.com/r/hiphopheads/comments/2ytcl4/the_truth_about_the_new_wutang_album_part_2/ several]] [[https://www.reddit.com/r/hiphopheads/comments/3w39i2/the_truth_about_the_new_wutang_album_part_3/ facts]] regarding the album, most notably the implications it's ''not'' an actual album by the Clan, but an originally planned fan project by Cilvaringz as an "album" for the fans. Which makes his infamous "This album isn't for the fans" quote more hypocritical.


Added DiffLines:

** There have been some hopes of it leaking, with Shkreli's arrest in 2015 for ''heavy'' frauds, a ''suing'' from an artist who's art was '''used in the album book without his permission''', but alas, only fate will come in to release the album.

* Car Seat Headrest's album ''Teens Of Denial'' originally included "Just What I Wanted/Not Just What I Needed", which included musical and lyrical quotes of Music/TheCars' "Just What I Needed" as a ShoutOut: Matador Records failed to properly license "Just What I Needed" and Ric Ocasek nixed the use of his song, so all original copies of the album were destroyed before its initial release date and the group [[RearrangeTheSong rearranged the song]] and re-titled it "Not What I Needed".

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABL5Elr16hc There was a 51 second snippet uploaded by Forbes]] regarding the album, but fans are divided whether or not the music ''is good'', considering how the album is suffering HypeBacklash.

* In 1995, a singer named John Bunzow recorded an album for Liberty Records titled ''Stories of the Years'', which included the single "Easy as One, Two, Three." Although the album was reviewed (favorably) by at least ''Entertainment Weekly'' and ''Allmusic'', it was never released due to a label management change that merged it back into parent company Capitol Records.

The song's music video has at least two copies floating around Website/YouTube, however.

* CountryMusic band River Road released a single in 2000 titled "Breathless" via Virgin Records. It was to have been the lead single to their second album ''Somethin' in the Water'', and while advance copies of the album were sent to radio stations, the album itself never saw the light of day due to Capitol buying out Virgin's roster. The title track of the album later became an example of this trope a ''second'' time when its writer, Jeffrey Steele, cut it for an album that was also never released due to ''his'' label, Monument, closing its Nashville arm (although it later appeared on an independently-released album).
* In 2004, a country band called The Jenkins cut two songs: "Blame It on Mama" and "Getaway Car", both for Capitol Records. They were to have been singles for an album on Capitol that had Music/RodneyCrowell as producer, but it never saw light of day due to the singles' underperformance, and The Jenkins were never heard from again.

* Cloud Cult's 'first' album (actually a Craig Minowa solo album)"The Shade Project" is one of the most notoriously mysterious albums, owing to the extreme lack of information about it. What is known is that it was made by Craig on a [[NoBudget absolutely miniscule budget]] to the point where he used [[EverythingIsAnInstrument all sorts of items and objects in his house as substitutes for instruments]] and it garnered positive attention from record companies that he ultimately turned down in favour of starting his own environmentaly-conscious one. Beyond that, almost nothing is known about it. It's unknown what format it was released on (if it had a proper physical release ''at all''), how many copies were made, the cover art or even a proper track listing (there are a few track listings here and there, but its impossible to properly verify them). Hell, there is even speculation that even Cloud Cult themselves don't have a copy. Although a good percentage of songs from it were re-released with other rarities on Cloud Cult's "Lost Songs From the Lost Years" (which is in and of itself difficult to track down) "The Shade Project" remains not only a source of frustration to die-hard fans trying to get a complete collection, but one of the greatest mysteries of the music world.

* Rebecca Lynn Howard takes the cake, though. Her second album, ''Forgive'', was cut off after only one single. After that, her third MCA album ''Laughter & Tears'' was canceled in 2003 due to underperforming singles; an album for Arista titled ''Alive & Well'', slated for a 2005 release, suffered the same fate. Then after ''that'', she moved to Show Dog Nashville (now known as Show Dog-Universal) and released only one single in 2006 that went nowhere. She ''finally'' got a third album out in 2008.

* Jon Randall also has two unreleased albums in the can: ''Great Day to Be Alive'' in 1996 for RCA Records, and ''Cold Coffee Morning'' in 1998 for Asylum. The former produced no singles, but its title track was later a big hit in 2001 for Travis Tritt. The latter had two chart singles in its title track and "She Don't Believe in Fairy Tales".

** "Now and Then" was originally recorded as a Music/JohnLennon home demo, and was given to the surviving Beatles in the 1990's by Yoko Ono to flesh out and make a new song. It was never finished and never made it out. Fans are dying to hear it in one way or another, even if incomplete. The good news? Paul has shown interest in finishing it with Ringo.

** [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_Caf%C3%A9#Unreleased_material According to the band]], there are no missing tracks and everything they planned for ''Techno Pop'' has been released. In fact, in the 2009 Der Katalog re-release, ''Electric Cafe'' was renamed as ''Techno Pop''.

* Mike Doughty recorded his solo debut, ''Skittish'', in 1996, shortly before the release of SoulCoughing's ''Irresistible Bliss'' - the label rejected it for sounding too different from Soul Coughing. The album's first "release" was in the form of homemade copies that Doughty started selling as merch during a 2000 solo tour; Much of his set at the time consisted of songs from the ''Skittish'' sessions, and he had found that material had become popular after circulating on file-sharing services. ''Skittish'' finally saw a more proper release in 2004, as a two-disc set that also featured outtakes, live songs, and the later EP ''Rockity Roll''.
