Watch Frances Bean Cobain preview her first original song

"I think I saw you when I was small," Frances sings

Frances Bean Cobain has previewed her first original song in an Instagram clip.

The model, artist and daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love has gradually made her foray into music, recently covering Jimmy Eat World and Leonard Cohen.

Sharing a clip of herself singing what appears to be an original composition, Frances said in an Instagram caption: “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 singin to mah self”.


She added: “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.”

The clip sees Cobain sing: “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.”

Frances also revealed some other lyrics from the track in a comment to fans. Those read: “Stable sable sold her heart/No one asks her why she hides in a basket in her house in a box/Find a fiend who reigns supreme in May/Fast enough for blooming buds to lay their egg.”

The song, which Frances says “doesn’t have a title yet because it’s still a baby song”, can be seen as marking the anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death. The Nirvana frontman died on April 5, 1994.

Recently, Frances Bean revealed her love of Peace and said that their track ‘From Under Liquid Glass’ is her “favourite” song of the past decade.

Cobain took to Instagram in February to post a clip from the band’s video for their 2017 track, which sees frontman Harry Koisser singing while underwater in a bath tub. In a caption, she called it her “favourite song of the last 10 years”.
