About Always Something, he commented, "As I was recording, I kept thinking about the phrase 'Always Something'. I found a deeper meaning. In life, you're met with negatives, and you're met with positives. From my experience, I've always been able to have more peace and progress when I am focused on whatever good is going on in my life. When it seems like everything going on is negative, it's easier to move forward when you are focused on the upside. There's Always Something to remain positive about."
