The Voice of Ireland coach Kian Egan has announced that Home will be the first single from his upcoming debut solo album of the same name, with both released on Friday March 14.

The ballad Home was written by Chris Daughtry of the American band Daughtry and was nominated for a Grammy when originally released.

The song will receive its first Irish airplay on Ryan Tubridy's show on RTÉ 2fm on Monday morning, February 10.

Egan said: "I've always absolutely loved this song. It means so much to me to be able to perform it, and for it to be the first track from my solo album is an incredible privilege."

Egan's record label, Warner Music UK, said his solo album will "introduce Kian's fans to some of his favourite songs, to which he brings his own personal touch".
