2017 will see the release of Omar's long awaited 8th studio album, “Love In Beats”. Arguably his most eclectic and varied album to date, this will firmly cement Omar's enviable reputation as a truly unique and gifted artist.
Recorded mostly in Omar's own Backayard Studios in South London with his brother (Grammy award winning The Scratch Professer), “Love In Beats” is a career defining album that beautifully demonstrates Omar's unique voice, along with his skills as a multi-instrumentalist and producer.
More eclectic than previous albums, “Love In Beats” incorporates Soul, Caribbean rhythms, an undercurrent of Funk, touches of Zouk, a Jazzy Waltz and spoken word. It also features collaborations with U.S. Soul legend Leon Ware, Robert Glasper (Blue Note), U.S. rapper Ty, Guadeloupean singer Jean-Michele Rotin, U.K. soulstress Natasha Watts, The Floacist and the Cape Verdean born, Paris based singer Mayra Andrade
