When you’re the product of grunge music royalty, people will have certain expectations, and for Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole singer Courtney Love, fans have been awaiting her foray into the music world.
Yahoo reports that Cobain posted to her Instagram account a video of her singing an untitled original song, much to the delight of her fans. But she deleted it afterwards, and reuploaded a new video of the song with a few tweaks.
Cobain captioned the video “Not hey there delilah,” a reference to the 2006 acoustic hit from Plain White T’s.
Strumming along to acoustic guitar, she sings “I think I found you when I was small/ I think I found you/ A penny for your good thoughts,” and like a true performer, had expressive body language all throughout the little clip.
Of course, people think they can say whatever they want in the comments section, and Frances was a ready target. She replied to a fan who compared her and her parents’ style of music:
“You are probably right in the respect that people probably can make assumptions or conclusions about my art because they are informed about my life’s trajectory,” she wrote. “Not everyone has to like it, that’s not a requirement of making and receiving art.”
We’ll just hold onto our seats to see what Frances is cooking up for the future, as she acknowledged that she plans to officially release the untitled song, satiating Nirvana and Hole fans alike that the formerly blonde little girl cradled in her rocker parents’ arms will also try for a career in music.
Before, she’s performed covers of songs from artists like Jimmy Eat World and Leonard Cohen, but the younger Cobain is also quite the star in the art world, debuting her unique and somewhat macabre style back in the early 2000s at La Luz de Jesus gallery, and another last year.
