Frances Bean Cobain has very occasionally dipped her toes into playing music, like the time she very briefly covered Jimmy Eat World in 2016. She has by no means made a music career for herself, despite her parents being Kurt Cobain (who died 24 years ago today) and Courtney Love, but she seems to at least have an interest in writing her own music, since she just shared a snippet of her first original song.

In a new Instagram video, she goes a capella on the untitled song, which includes lyrics about Jesus and Heaven. She captioned the video, “A) there are so many memeable 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.”


In the song, she sings, “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.” Consequence Of Sound also notes that the song includes another verse not featured in the video, that goes, “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.”
