"I feel thankful and excited kasi it's a fulfillment for me to release my first album," he said during his media conference for his first album under GMA Music. 

He describes how his album came to be. "It contains five songs, it talks about the journey of falling in love and having heartbreaks and waiting for the right one.

"If I were to put it together since "Lilipad Na" up to" Ikaw Pala" it's like a book that talks about love from different people. It also talks about the music journey I've been through."

Among the tracks is Garrett's revival of Kris Lawrence's song, "Ikaw Pala."

Garrett shares how he picked this song, "During the process of picking songs, sa pag-iisip ng aking next single, there's been a couple of songs in our minds pero itong song na po ito narinig ko po ang ang sarap bigyan ng sariling interpretation."

He admits he did feel a little bit of pressure when making his album. "Hindi po mawawala sa isip ko na isipin kung magugustuhan ba ng mga tao at paano nila tatanggapin 'yung album, nandoon 'yung fear. I'm just really having fun, and I'm enjoying how I'm able to share a full album."

Aside from having his very own milestone of having an album, one of Garrett's recent achievement is appearing in a stage production of Miss Saigon in Guam where he appeared as American G.I. John Thomas. According to him, his journey in Miss Saigon is something that he will never forget because it's a big production and he is very thankful for the opportunity and experience. He is hoping to gain more opportunities like this that can help him grow as an artist and performer. Garrett also mentioned that he wishes to do a collab with fellow Kapuso artist Julie Anne San Jose.

Chapters will be released and available for download and streaming on digital stores worldwide on January 27 under GMA Music.
