Frances Bean Cobain often shares songs on Instagram, performed with a simple voice and acoustic guitar. Earlier this year, Cobain uploaded her first ever original song to the platform (she’d previous only performed covers), and now she’s uploaded a new missive, one that is, in her own words, a “rough yet delicate tune” written the night before.
“The creative death rattle of 2018, as it were,” she adds in the Instagram caption. “It’s been a weird one but I’ve never felt more creatively charged or more in control of my own narrative.”
She also posted some of the song’s lyrics: “Keep telling yourself, it’s gotta get better / As you move through time, As you move through time.”
As for the “weird” year? It may be in reference to the odd, complex legal activity surrounding Frances Bean Cobain’s divorce and the ownership of a guitar that belonged to her father, Kurt Cobain.
Earlier this year, news emerged that Frances Bean Cobain had signed a two-album deal with Columbia Records. Currently the songwriter has only shared her music on Instagram, rather than any studio produced tracks.
