EDITORS’ NOTES

Xavier Omär, a rising singer who previously recorded under the moniker SPZRKT, has a voice made of silk and soul that allows him to commingle R&B and gospel music seamlessly. A collaboration with the producer Sango, Moments Spent Loving You, the follow-up to Hours Spent Loving You, is a meditation on romance in its most pure and vulnerable form that blurs the lines of sacred and profane. On the simmering opener "Deep End," sensuality is balanced with harmonies and layered vocals that create a gorgeous choir, a style that's deployed throughout the project to striking effect. In Omär's hands, even the most matter-of-fact declarations of love sound like prayers.
