DAX to calculate previous year Value

I am looking for DAX measure where I can get previous year value.

I tried following DAX but it was giving blank value:

DAX measure for previous year volume = Calculate(sum('table'[volume], dateadd('table'[date].[Date],-1,year))

 

The measure should give following values in column name(DAX measure for previous year volume)

CountryVolume currentdateDAX measure for previous year volume

@Anonymous when you are working with the time intelligence DAX function, as a best practice you should add a Calendar dimension in your model and then use columns from this new dimension table in the DAX measure. You can check the full playlist of time intelligence functions and importance of the Calendar dimension on my YT channel
