After dropping his solid singles “Something About You” and “Rebound” last year, London-based singer-songwriter and former Jessie Ware drummer Dornik Leigh brings more of his silky ’80s funk vibes with his third single “On My Mind”. It’s yet another MJ-esque slow jam with ultra-smooth grooves and a sultry vocal that’ll be stuck in your head for days.

Dornik’s new single “On My Mind” is due out soon via PMR Records. His debut album is expected sometime next year.

Having previously gained serious attention with his Michael Jackson-esque slow jam “Something About You”, which saw a release earlier this year via PMR Records, rising London singer/producer Dornik, who used to play drums in Jessie Ware’s touring band, has returned to the same label with his smooth second single “Rebound”, an R&B-flavored synth-pop track that has been on repeat on our car stereo all weekend.

“Rebound” is taken from Dornik’s forthcoming debut album, slated for release on PMR Records early next year. Until then, give “Rebound” a spin above, and drive slow. Also, you can revisit his first single “Something About You” below.

Update: Here’s the video for “Rebound”, directed by Ben Strebel.
