This week saw the release of the new Santigold album, which has been four years in the making, although somehow it seems a lot longer. While we’re not entirely sold on Master of My Make-Believe, it did get us thinking about the fact that 2012 is shaping up as a good year for ticking off the list of long-awaited records that will (hopefully) be arriving at last. After the jump, we’ve pulled together a selection of 10 albums for which we’ve been waiting far too long — shit, some of them have been pending for longer than Chinese Democracy was! Did we miss anything?
Sigur Rós — Valtari
We’ve been waiting… 4 years
After Sigur Rós’s hiatus and Jonsi’s solo endeavors, it looked like this album might never happen at all, so it’s a pleasure to be able to say that it’s due out later this month. (We’ll ignore the fact that it has in fact already leaked, as a commenter pointed out yesterday.)
