“continued significance in his life”
As well as sharing news about the songs picked by Keating, Decca Records also had this to say on the latest project from the singer.
“The album toasts Ronan Keating’s love for Irish music, as well as its continued significance in his life”, they said.
They also added, “Celebrating traditional poetry and folklore alongside contemporary pieces, Songs From Home forms the ultimate soundtrack to Ronan’s personal story. Masterfully, Ronan weaves between unheard tales of his youth to artists embedded in Ronan, and Ireland’s, substantial musical heritage”.
Last month, Ronan Keating and his wife Storm shared an update to let people know that their four year old son Cooper was “on the mend” having been rushed to hospital.
Cooper was taken to Chelsea and Westminister Hospital, with his parents “worried sick”.
Alongside a photo of their son resting on the hopsital bed, Storm wrote, “48hrs we are happy to see the back of. Thank you to everyone for your prayers and well wishes – they worked (!) because our little man is on the mend and on the way home too”.
She also added, “Huge thanks to all the wonderful staff @chelwestft who were simply amazing. This mummy is exploding with joy and relief to be bringing @cooper_keating home with daddy”.
