Tim Kasher can be quite the morose fellow. On his latest solo track, "Truly Freaking Out," the Cursive frontman takes on one of the heaviest topics – death. "'Truly Freaking Out' is about how I'm truly freaking out that everyone I know will be dying one of these days," Kasher tells Rolling Stone. But Kasher's tone doesn't weigh so gravely, and the swift track posits more wonder than angst: bloopy bass barrels through and fuzzy, escalating synths bounce throughout. "I don't believe the fairy tale of our eternity," Kasher sings in deceptively upbeat fashion. At least he's handling the freak-out well.

"Truly Freaking Out" will be on Tim Kasher's upcoming album, Adult Film, out October 8th on Saddle Creek; pre-orders are available here. Kasher will also hit the road for a fall tour starting October 5th at the Waiting Room in Omaha, Nebraska. Visit Kasher's website for full tour dates.
