See Pop Matters for a fine piece on Anja Garbarek's "Smiling and Waving" (Virgin 2001) ("The Riddle in the Middle of Nowhere" 10 August 2017).
Listen to the beautiful song "The Diver" with Robert Wyatt over here if you don´t have it in any format.
Later Robert did a cover of "Stay Tuned" from "Smiling and Waving" on the "Comicopera" album in 2007.

In December 2010 we had a post on a Swedish book and CD called "Keep Yourself Alive. Den galna jakten på 70-tallets rockjältar" by Petter Karlsson and Sören "Sulo" Karlsson (Lind & Co 2012).
On the CD Sulo plays old hits with several of the artists interviewed. Robert Wyatt instead asked Sulo to write some lyrics to the title "Enjoy the risk", and he would play the piano.
I don´t know if it´s still possible to buy the book or find the music, but "Enjoy the risk" is on YouTube if you would like to listen.

On a Vic Chesnutt bootleg, recorded live at 40 Watt Club (Athens, GA) on 2008-03-01, there is a track called "Robert Wyatt".
A sad song (but gaining some laughs from the audience) and Wyatt is just mentioned in connection with jumping/falling out of windows.
I didn´t know about this one until I saw it on YouTube.
Not that we support bootlegs, but you will find more info and a track list right over here.
