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.
He continued, "I'm waiting to decide how to release it [...] it's so much music and everything is so different.
So, it's a question of how to put it into the world and, er, I have some ideas to do it with [...] computer art and also make it like a game [...] I have so many stories that I have been writing [...] 4 musicals, if you like, which is music and songs and me talking about the story. So it's a large concept idea." We see here common repeated themes of a large backlog of material, and of uncertainty how best to release it and of releasing it in some unconventional digital way, involving a game or, in other interviews, an app.

A Mar 2014 interview said, "Just this past week, he received new music from friends in Poland, Italy and New York." In another that month, he said he is working on "a lot of different things this year .
They're just fun songs, crazy songs, sad songs, hope-for-peace songs. I did a concert with a group of musicians two years ago in Slovakia [...] Im doing other things with different bands.
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.As for a full reunion should it be offered, though, he demurs.

In a Jun 2011 interview, he had said: Ive had enough of bands. And I just thought, well, as long as they tell everybody who's in the band [...] and I'm not there and Rick's not there [...] for me, it's just a question of getting on with my life  in fact, Ive started writing Yes music, which I never thought I would do, because when I was in the band, I would always save writing Yes music to...
