Frances Bean Cobain is apparently following in the footsteps of her late father, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, and periodically shares some of the songs she’s written with her Instagram followers.
On Tuesday, the 26-year-old posted a video of herself playing guitar and singing an original tune, warning that “these are clips of a very sad song but it’s raw and truthful so i wanted to share it.”
While she doesn’t specifically mention her dad by name, it doesn’t take a whole lot of sleuthing to guess who the song’s about, given such lyrics as, “I know you weren’t meant to stay in this place/Sometimes I find it hard to look at my own face.”
At the end of her post, Cobain writes that music will be “coming soonish y’all,” and thanks her followers “for the continued interest and words of encouragement. I see them all and they make my heart full.”
Cobain, whose mother is Hole rocker Courtney Love, addressed rumours of a record deal during an interview with RuPaul (whom she’s known since she was a toddler) on his podcast, “What’s the Tee?” earlier this year.
Asked about reports that she signed a two-record deal with Columbia, Cobain answered evasively. “I can’t speak of those things at the moment,” she said.

Crazy for it You think I’m goin down I think I should be in line to Save myself I don’t mind the sun sometimes Break me open And I’ll fall to pieces State your business Or keep your distance I’m not done just yet Long live no one Nowhere never Keep telling yourself it’s gotta get better As you move through time As you move through time I wrote this here rough yet delicate tune last night. The creative death rattle of 2018, as it were. It’s been a weird one but I’ve never felt more creatively charged or more in control of my own narrative.
