How to get previous month name on the card when I select any particular month from slicer.

Selected Month = SELECTEDVALUE('Date'[Date].[Month])

The above expression returns the current month selected by the slicer in a card as dynamic text. ex. If a user selects December it will change the text to display December.


But I want previous month eg. when user select January it should display December. 


Please help me. 

Thanks in advance!
