Listen To A Snippet Of Frances Bean Cobain’s New Song
When you are the daughter of two rock stars, you are necessarily under a lot of scrutiny and when you are on Instagram, you are just asking for attention. I am sorry but if you want to keep it private, forget social media. Consequence of Sound immediately picked up on the story, which had already been noticed by some Spanish ‘Top TV’ You Tube account: Frances Bean Cobain, daughter of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love posted a song, at least a snippet of it, on her Instagram page, and of course she deleted it right away.
But the internet being the internet, the video was captured before its deletion and you can watch Frances below, singing her song a cappella, with a very emotional voice…. Too bad the sound got lost after a few seconds. Honestly, in this short excerpt, with her high croon and fist beating her chest, she sounds closer to Celine Dion than to her mother, and that’s the main surprise.
According to Consequence of Sound, she said she wrote the song, which has the following 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.’… ‘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.’
She also had posted the video with the caption :’A) there are so many memorable moments in this clip B) 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 C) 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.’
On her Instagram page, as fans were asking her why she had deleted the video, she explained:‘I took it down for a few reasons. The main one being that I’m not interested in succumbing to a fantastical notion that the song was meant to be directly commemorative of my father, today. Even if the lyrical content does contend with feelings i have about him. That wasn’t the intent or the point. Indulging societal projections about what people WANT things to be about doesn’t really interest me. I’ll release the song in full once it’s done. Until then, enjoy this video of a baby laughing at a dandelion https://youtu.be/wU4DgHHwVCc’
She posted the video a day before the anniversary of her father’s death, so obviously people are gonna make the connection! But she also says she will release the song, so does it mean she is finally following her parents’ path? We can presume it is the case, except for this emotional singing….
