Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of the late-Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love, recently shared a video on Instagram which features part of an original new composition from the 25-year-old songwriter.
This the first original composition that she has shared publicly, although she has previously posted video performances of herself singing covers of songs such as “Hallelujah” by Leonard Cohen and “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World.
As of press time, the video already has more than 200,000 views. In her post on Instagram, Frances Bean jokes “there are so many ‘memeable’ moments in this clip.”
“I’m super restless because I can’t play guitar with long nails, so I’m just sitting in my room alone, singing to myself,” she states. “Not having a TV in my house is the best decision because I’m forced to occupy my time with things that feed my brain & soul instead of wasting energy on thinking about not having to think 👻 (p.s. pls don’t steal my baby bean of an idea. Thanks.)”
The song features a short sample in which we hear sing the lyrics: “I think I saw you when I was small / I think I found you / A penny for your good thoughts / I think I found you / Jesus hangs in your place on the cross / All these hinges become unscrewed / Heaven knows it was a cage on earth.”
Her unique songwriting and power-packed performance will certainly leave listeners eager to hear more.
