Cursive are returning with a new album. On September 13, the Omaha group will return with their first new album in five years, Devourer, which is being released via Run for Cover. Today they’ve shared new song “Up and Away.” Hear it below.

“‘Up And Away’ is an unusual pop song, it kind of slinks about musically. I had the ‘up, up, up, up, up, up and away’ section of lyrics in my head from its inception but hadn’t planned on using something so bright, cheery and arguably trite…until it occurred to me that what I was really singing about was something floating away from me, something I was losing, not my personal elevation into some stratosphere. So, it stuck,” said singer/guitarist Tim Kasher in a statement. “The video is the first in a series of horror-esque stories we’ve been planning for some time now, a collection of videos created by genre directors. Brea Grant conceived this story of a down-on-his-luck loafer who gets consumed by his own depression, swallowed into some surreal underworld of blanket forts where Cursive seems to be wallowing as well.” 

In 2022, Cursive frontman Tim Kasher released his solo album, Middling Age. Cursive’s The Ugly Organ is featured on our list of the 50 Best Albums of 2003.
