Unreleased songs[edit]

Joseph Arthur has an ever-expanding, vast catalog of songs that have yet to see the light of day on an official release (rumor has it there's over 200 songs recorded to date in this back-catalog of unreleased songs). These songs have either been only played live, or were recorded and put up on either his website, MySpace page, or his Tumblr blog page Bag Is Hot.[5] The list of unreleased songs can be found on the definitive fan website lonelyastronauts.com.[6]
