Helena Hauff has announced that her debut album, Discreet Desires, will see release later this year. Ahead of it, she has shared 'Sworn To Secrecy Part II', an impressive addition to her steadily growing collection of singles and EPs and the first track to be revealed from the album. Watch the video below.

The track brings to mind the very best of 80s dark wave building on the sounds explored on March's Lex Tertia EP. Hauff says: "I have the feeling it's more one-to-one - you do something and then the machine reacts. The machine has its own mind too, so it gives something back," describing her relationship with technology in the LP's press release. Discreet Desires is set for release on September 4, courtesy of Werkdiscs/Ninja Tune. Head here for her current tour dates and read Albert Freeman's interview with Hauff from earlier this year while you're at it.
