Anderson is currentlu working on a follow-up to Open, the 21-minute progressive piece of music that he released in 2011. The new piece is to be entitled Ever. “Music is constantly happening all around me. I’m busy working on Ever, a follow up to Open, part two of my journey into the longer form music I love to create.,” he says.
And in news that will thrill Anderson fans, Anderson has also announced the title of his much-anticipated follow-up to his 1976 solo album, Olias Of Sunhillow. The forthcoming album is to be called Zamran (son of Olias). “Zamran is slowly finding me, or I’m slowly finding Zamran,” he laughs. “Sometimes good things take time, I’m told.”
