Artists Who Have Kept Us Waiting for an Album for WAY Too Long

By  | 


All music lovers know the agonizing feeling when their favorite artist hasn't released a new album in a while. You're stuck listening to the same songs you know by heart, with Google Alerts on, just waiting for news about a new single, studio time, producer collaborations, ANY hint or announcement that new music is on the way. It's treacherous.

Most times, though, the wait is worthwhile. Your artist comes out with a carefully crafted album, just as good (if not better) than the ones that preceded it. And then you realize that the time between albums was painful, but paid off. Each song was considered; each take had to be perfect. It's hard to remember this when you're in a music drought, however. All you can think of is when your ears will get to hear the next release, and that's totally understandable. So, we'll give these artists the benefit of the doubt that they're working really hard on something for us. (While we also put a little pressure on them to hurry things up!)
