READ: Congratulations Xavier Omar On Passing One Million Monthly Listeners On Spotify

Several months ago Omär achieved one million monthly listeners on Spotify and has come a long way since his days as SPZRKT. Two years ago we spoke with him as a part of our First Look Friday series, where he talked to us about a number of topics including the artists that influence him.

James BlakeChris MartinKanye WestCee-Lo Green and Pharrell Williams,” Omär said. “Each of these guys did something that previously wasn’t being done and in ways that came off as if they always had their mind made up about it. James with songs that don’t fit the typical mold like ‘We Might Feel Unsound,’ Chris with all the sonic transitions  Coldplay has made but still feel very much like Coldplay, Kanye first with the violins, then with 808s and Heartbreaks, Cee-Lo for his Gnarls Barkley venture with Danger Mouse (I don’t exist as I am without those albums), and Pharrell with his signature production, electronic/soul/hip-hop/rock venture of N*E*R*D, and his pop album Girl.”

Omär has also released a new track titled “Runnin’ Round,” which you can listen to below.

Check out tour dates for the “Pink Lightning Tour” below. Tickets for the tour go on sale October 6.
