Over the years, we have been teased with snippets of new music by our favorite artists. Though a lot of this music has yet to reach our daily playlists, we are still hopeful that one day, these albums will make it to the public sphere. Some have been teasing their projects, and/or speaking on it  for so long that some may have stopped paying attention, but to others, this wait has only increased the anticipation.

With everyone from legends to newcomers, we’ve compiled a list of a few albums that we wish had a release date, while providing some history and background to the albums in question.
