Well, new-ish...

Whitburn's self-proclaimed “king of flogging the same old stuff” is bringing out a ‘finale’ version of his million-selling debut album, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent.

The snappily-titled Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent: Finale (see what he did there?) is a full extended album with the entire set from the 24-year-old’s live performances at London's Wembley Arena in March.

Whitburn chart sensation Lewis Capaldi is set to release a 'finale' version of his debut album.

The self-effacing pop singer, who has become a global sensation in the past two years, joked that he’s offering fans something new after "flogging the same dead horse for two years”.

Lewis said: “On December 4, I’ll be releasing Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent, the finale version – that’s right, another version of an album I released two years ago, that you’ve already heard countless times.

“It’s going to be brilliant. When you get this album – I’ve been flogging the same dead horse for two years, so it would be weird to give you this album and not give you something new – you will receive the entire extended version of my album, and also get a complete live recording of our show from Wembley Arena back in March.

"The king of flogging the same old stuff is back," he added.

Fans who pre-order the album before December 4 will also be in with a chance of winning a 'FaceTime' with Lewis.

The Someone You Loved hitmaker will also sign the first 500 copies of the album.
