In another that month, he said he is working on "a lot of different things this year .I helped to create these larger pieces of music.] That's one of the things I've learnt over the last five or six years to work with people via the internet.I'm working with a dozen people round the world, constantly writing songs.In an Apr 2017 interview, Anderson said, "I'm just a workaholic when it comes to music.I've got a dozen albums ready to go at the moment, but they're not really finished.In a Jan 2005 Rockline interview, he said his new year's resolution was "to finish all the songs and projects I've started and not finished for the last twenty years." In a circa May 2004 Jam Base interview, he said, "I just got in a trunk full of songs I've written over the years and there must be a thousand songs there.[...] I was wondering what am I doing [with all this music]. I better get on with it." In the Mar 2006 article, Anderson discusses various projects that he has started over the last few decades, saying, "I want to get [those] finished and get ready for the coming next few years because I think these are the best years of my life coming up." In a Mar 2008 interview, Anderson is quoted as saying: "I'm always working on one or two or three things. I've got another 20 or 30 years left." He has been going about this in a number of ways, including The Lost Tapes and other archival releases, re-visiting his "Chagall" musical and Zamran.
I want to continue to make that kind of Yes music [...] Interviewer: [...] Are you open to the idea of an extensive tour with them [Yes]? That's kind of bizarre to me that they'd say they already had a singer, six months later that singer, probably a lovely guy, couldn't handle the touring [...] Now they have another singer, they didn't call me or ask me if I'd be interested, they just say oh he's sick, which is a lot of rubbish. And there are thousands of people who would like us to get together [...] Rick would have to be in the band. We'd probably do some shows or something, some beautiful new music [...] we could make a movie or something like that, just to honor all the fans.
Anderson has talked about the same ideas with respect to other projects, like the Zamran material.
That material often stems from these many online collaborationsas have other projects like Survival and Other Stories or, less directly, Invention of Knowledgebut there is also reference here to 4 "musicals, if you like".
I just need a few doors open." Anderson said in a Nov 2013 interview, "I think I'm working with about twenty different people at the moment, with twenty different projects." An Oct 2015 interview with Anderson said: I think the days of just going into a studio and making an album are not what I want to do anymore[.] I'm more interested in the adventure of free-form ideas.
I know it sounds crazy, but I like it when you're not quite sure what you're gonna do until you get on stage. I've got this project coming up next year  which encompasses that, the idea that music is more important than how many sell, or even the charts [...] after a while you've gone through that experience, all you want to do is create music without having to worry if people are gonna hear it.
He has also talked of enjoying having multiple projects on the go: this from a Mar 2010 interview, "I'm just working on [a specific project] along with a dozen other projects at the same time. Like baking a few cakes at the same time and watching them get better and better and tastier musically speaking." In the aforementioned Jun 2012 interview, Anderson said, "I've got a backlog of songs.
