HOLLYWOOD, Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Season 11 "American Idol" winner Phillip Phillips' debut album, "The World From the Side of the Moon," is set for a Nov. 19 release, Amazon.com said.

It is unclear what will be included on the 22-year-old's first release, though The Hollywood Reporter said radio hit "Home" is sure to be on the album. The song "Take Me Away," which Phillips has performed on the radio and another song he has referenced in interviews, "Drive Me," could also be included.

The Leesburg, Ga., native described his sound as "jazz and rock" with some alternative.

Phillips recently wrapped up the American Idol Live! tour last month and performed solo for the Dalai Lama last week, The Hollywood Reporter reported Saturday.

Fellow "American Idol" alum, Kelly Clarkson, is also scheduled to release a new album on Nov. 19. Clarkson's "Greatest Hits -- Chapter 1" will include three new tracks.
