Nilüfer Yanya has announced details of her debut LP, 'Miss Universe'.

Preceded by last November's Heavyweight Champion of the Year and today's offering, In Your Head, the London-based artist's first full-length offering is set to arrive on March 22 via ATO Records.

Head below to view the album's cover art and tracklist, alongside the new track's accompanying video directed by her longtime creative collaborator ENERGYFORCE. Discussing the song, Yanya said:

"Sometimes my mind plays tricks on me and I get trapped. There’s the things I need disguised as things I think I only want, things I think I’m choosing out of choice not necessity. Sometimes this only becomes clear in retrospect, or maybe it will never become clear. Some people may call that being paranoid. I think that’s what I wrote the song about, but what’s interesting to me, and what I think I was trying to get at, is the illusion of freedom."

Yanya tours North America throughout February supporting Sharon Van Etten, before heading to the UK and Europe in the spring.
