Liela Moss of the Duke Spirit has announced her debut solo LP.

'My Name Is Safe In Your Mouth' will arrive on November 9 through Bella Union, with shows set to follow in London, Manchester and Brighton during December. Tickets go on sale at 10am on August 8.

Speaking to Clash, who premiered the video for the record's first single, Wild As Fire, she said:

"The video was shot in deep Somerset, in wild remote countryside! The photographer Ren Rox (who created the album cover image with film and lens filters only, no digital intervention!) shot and directed the video, as I really wanted her aesthetic to overlap into these first visual moments for the album. Her ideas celebrate vibrancy and found-forms in nature and she brings a lush, filmic quality to what is a very simple and humble piece.

Ren followed me like a shadow on several of my walks, through fields and along hidden tracks that are usually hard to find. She tried not to disturb me much as I meandered through the fairly secret places I had often walked to think about the songs on the album, to try melody out loud where nobody could hear me! These overgrown spaces are where I occasionally go and consider lyrics and ask the trees for answers... or just absorb more oxygen."

The track is charming in its indie-folk simplicity, while Moss's haunting vocals wouldn't sound out of place on the Valley of the Dolls soundtrack.

The Duke Spirit, meanwhile, put out 'Sky Is Mine', in August 2017.

Liela Moss Upcoming Tour Dates are as follows

Wed December 12 2018 - LONDON Lexington
Thu December 13 2018 - MANCHESTER Gullivers
Fri December 14 2018 - BRIGHTON Unitarian Church
