Frances Bean Cobain Debuts a New Acoustic Song on Instagram

It’s the third snippet of original music she’s revealed.

Frances Bean Cobain has once again proved that there should be no doubt cast upon her musical talents.

The daughter of the music icons Courtney Love and Kurt Cobain revealed the third snippet of a new song on Instagram Sunday. The track, which the 26-year-old musician plays on acoustic guitar, features her gorgeous, gritty vocals, showing that musical talent does indeed run in the family.

Cobain’s latest snippet is the third original piece of music she’s shared with the public. She shared her first track earlier this year, on the anniversary of her father’s death, and a now-deleted offering in June, as well as a few covers of songs. Despite sharing a handful of clips, Cobain hasn’t revealed the titles of any of her tracks. But in her most recent post, she does provide what seems like a self-critique in the caption, saying, “‘What she lacks in technical precision, she makes up for with charisma’ ? ???.”

While it’s unclear when the burgeoning singer will be releasing full compositions, the Irish publication The Business Times reported that Cobain has signed a two-year record deal with Columbia Records. However, she has yet to officially confirm or announce future projects.

After sharing her first original song clip this spring, Cobain made it a point to leave the idea of a “release” open-ended. An E! News reporter asked her about the snippet in April, after she initially shared it, and she downplayed the song. “I don’t want to pigeonhole myself and say I am a musician or a visual artist because I feel like it’s all encompassing and I feel like every bit of my art is related to the other,” she told the reporter. “So do I want to pursue my music further and see it come to fruition and see something further and see something palpable? Absolutely.”

There’s no reason why Cobain should be downplaying her talents—she’s clearly nailed her grunge-tinged compositions.
