Katherine Jenkins has urged fans not to buy her new album.

The classical singer claims her former record label Universal has put together a compilation of old material and doesn’t want her loyal followers to purchase songs they already have.

Katherine – who quit the label in 2008 to sign a huge £5.8million deal with rivals Warner Brothers -tweeted: “Universal Records are putting out YET ANOTHER compilation album of my music.

“Considering I haven’t recorded for them since 2008 it’s stuff you already have.”

She later told fans: “Don’t want you to feel conned.”

Katherine instead urged her fans to buy Warner album ‘Daydream’ as it features “all newly-recorded tracks”.

She added: “Make sure you get the right one!”

Katherine – who has sold more than four million albums worldwide – recently told how she had inspired to become a singer by her father, Selwyn, who passed away from lung cancer when she was 15, but encouraged her to seize “every opportunity” in life and pursue her passion for music.

The 31-year-old beauty said: “I definitely think that when you have a loss like that, it changes your outlook on life. Life’s too short, you know?

“You never know what’s going to happen and you have to make the most of it. My dad had always made me think that all this, my music career, could happen to me.

“So I take every opportunity because I think he would love to see all this. I think it makes you grow up when you’re a child as well. You grow up overnight because you have to be strong for everybody else and for what they’re going through as well. It definitely moulds you.”
