The Voice has announced the four coaches for its Spring 2023 season, including two brand new coaches.

NBC has announced Season 23 of The Voice premiering in the Spring of next year will star returning coaches Blake Shelton and Kelly Clarkson as well as newbie coaches Chance the Rapper and Niall Horan.

Carson Daly will also be returning as host of The Voice.

Chance is a Grammy Award-winning artist, songwriter and record producer, and NBC says he will bring "a fresh perspective" to The Voice next year and create opportunities for new artists in the music industry.

Not signed to a major label, Chance, a social activist, distributes his music freely via streaming services. The rapper is gearing up to release his next project, "Star Line Gallery."

"I'm thrilled to join The Voice as a coach for the next season," Chance said in a statement.

"I'm excited to help other artists get to the next level and make the most of this life-changing experience. Get ready for #teamchance."

Niall, a former member of One Direction -- a boyband that was put together by Simon Cowell on The X Factor in 2010 and went on to place third on the show -- is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.

Niall has two solo albums and released hits such as "This Town" and "Slow Hands."

"I'm excited to be joining this season of The Voice as a coach," Niall shared. "I'm looking forward to meeting and mentoring the new crop of talent while we battle it out with the other teams!"

Kelly will be returning to The Voice after her Season 21 victory with sibling trio, Girl Named Tom.

The pop singer and former American Idol winner served as a coach on Seasons 14 through 21. She also won Season 14 with Brynn Cartelli, Season 15 with Chevel Shepherd, and Season 17 with Jake Hoot.

"I am so excited to be back with my Voice family!" Kelly gushed. "Let's do this, Team Kelly!"

And finally, Blake will be sitting in one of the four big red chairs for his 23rd season.

Blake has been a mainstay coach on The Voice since the show premiered over a decade ago with Season 1 in 2011.

"This show has changed my life in every way for the better and it will always feel like home to me. It's been a hell of a ride over these 12 years of chair turns and I want to thank everyone at The Voice from NBC, every producer, the writers, musicians, crew and catering people, you are the best," Blake said in a statement.

"It takes a lot of work, passion, and adult beverages (Ha!) to pull off a live show twice a week. I've made lifelong bonds with Carson and every single one my fellow coaches over the years, including my wife, Gwen Stefani!"

Blake has won eight The Voice seasons with Season 2's Jermaine Paul, Season 3's Cassadee Pope, Season 4's Danielle Bradbery, Season 7's Craig Wayne Boyd, Season 11's Sundance Head, Season 13's Chloe Kohanski, Season 18's Todd Tilghman, and Season 20's Cam Anthony.

Blake also gave a shoutout to the singers who "amaze" with their talent every season and the show's fans who "watch and support these artists" chase their dreams.

"It wouldn't happen without you!" Blake noted.

The Voice's Spring 2023 edition will be Blake's last season as a coach.

The Voice is currently airing its Blind Auditions for Season 22 with Blake serving as a coach alongside Gwen, John Legend, and Camila Cabello.

The Voice was created by John de Mol and is executive produced by John, Mark Burnett, Audrey Morrissey, Amanda Zucker, Kyra Thompson and Adam H. Sher.
