A very influential piece of the '90s UK Soulful Movement puzzle, Omar, is set for a new album in late '09! Making me want to dance out of my seat with "When You Touch," Omar apparently hasn't lost his touch. Tapping greats like Common, Stevie Wonder, Angie Stone and Estelle on his 2006 release Sing (If You Want It), it's still up in the air who he has enlisted for his as yet untitled upcoming album, but certainly it will be a big-name affair. Currently, you can find Omar performing in a musical comedy entitled Been So Long, as lovelorn barman Barney, in a story about romance, rage, revenge and rare groove.
