Cool Touch is a 1990 album, recorded by the English singer-songwriter, Leo Sayer. It was only released in the United Kingdom, Australia and Germany. It was his first album release since 1983's Have You Ever Been in Love.

According to his own website,[1] Sayer says... Producer Alan Tarney and I were big dance music fans, so we went back into the studio to celebrate that. I guess this was the moment that all my James Brown influences bore fruit, and as always with Alan, we were knocking on the door of the current computer advances of the time. Now it was becoming scary what just two guys in the studio could do, so we had a lot of fun creating this. The album wasn't a big release, but that took the pressure off, so there’s a lot of wild creative stuff here. “I Can’t Stop” is a disco burner, “Rely On Me” is almost gospel, “Paperback Town” is political and I still don’t know how to describe “Suki’s Missing”, but it’s all very cool.
