Since we first caught wind of Cursive‘s new material last month at the CoS-backed Tomorrow Never Knows, we’ve been eagerly anticipating the release of the band’s upcoming album, which we learned a few weeks ago is officially titled Swollen and due out March 10th.

When the Omaha based rockers announced the album, they described it as “brimming with the universal, questioning the human condition, social morality, and the ‘Peter Pan Syndrome’ of grown men.” If the newly unveiled “I Couldn’t Love You,” says anything, then the aforementioned description is probably right on. As is the fact that the track, one of the ten set to appear on Swollen, is beaming with some pretty rich instrumentation – do I hear trumpet?

Check it out for yourself below. You can also hear another new selection, “From the Hips”, on Absolute Punk beginning tomorrow.
