Mary Byrne has said releasing her debut album is a "dream come true".

The Irish singer and X Factor finalist, who will soon be reunited with the former contestants as she hits the road on the X Factor tour, will release Mine & Yours on March 28, which includes musical highlights from her time on the ITV show including covers of James Brown's It's A Man's, Man's, Man's World and Barbra Streisand's The Way We Were.

"Recording this album was a dream come true," said Mary.

"I'm so grateful for all of the support I received both during and after the show. Nothing I'm experiencing now would have been possible without the wonderful people who picked up their phone each weekend and voted for me! I hope you enjoy listening to the album as much as I enjoyed making it."

Mary, a single mum from Dublin, was the last of Louis Walsh's acts to survive but was eliminated in the ninth week when she lost the sing-off to Cher Lloyd.
