There's no getting around it - it's officially Christmas music season.

It's also the time of year to focus on friends, family and loved ones - and that includes those who will not make it home for Christmas this year, for whatever reason.

Cork musician Brian Deady has rolled both themes into one with his new Christmas single.

'Come Home' is a sweet little laidback tune that certainly provides a welcome respite from the endless choruses of 'Jingle Bells' and 'Silent Night' - and its animated video is pretty gorgeous, too.

However, most importantly is the fact that Deady is running a competition on Facebook to coincide with the single's release.

He will fly a loved one home to Ireland for Christmas this year - all you have to do is tag someone who lives abroad on this Facebook post, and explain why you want to bring them home.

A shortlist will be revealed in a few weeks, and the winner will be announced soon afterwards.
