Kurt Cobain's daughter shares original song to mark father’s 26th death anniversary, rakes in over 200K views
She strums an acoustic guitar and sings ruefully with a pleasant and gentle accent. “It’s been a weird one but I’ve never felt more creatively charged or more in control of my own narrative," she wrote
April 5 marked the 26th death anniversary of Nirvana frontman, Kurt Cobain. The rocker had passed away at age 27, joining the infamous '27 Club', leaving behind his one-year-old daughter Frances Bean Cobain and his widow Courtney Love.
Frances was named after Frances McKee – guitarist and singer in The Vaselines and just like her father and her namesake, Frances has a penchant for writing melodies and singing.
She recently shared an original composition with her 1.3 million followers on her Instagram page. In the video, she was seen strumming her acoustic guitar and singing in a rueful tone with a pleasant and gentle accent. “It’s been a weird one but I’ve never felt more creatively charged or more in control of my own narrative," she wrote in the caption of the video that has amassed more than 200 thousand views until now.
Apart from being blessed with great chords, Frances also has a talent for modeling and has a couple of modeling gigs in her kitty. Her most high profile modeling outing was in 2017 when she was the face of Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer campaign.
In 2016, aged 14, she had posed for Elle Magazine in Kurt's famous brown cardigan and pajamas as part of an article featuring children of rock stars in their parents' clothing. She explained, "I wore his pajamas because he got married in them to my mom in 1992 in Hawaii so I thought they would be cute if I wore them today. He was too lazy to put on a tux so he got married in pajamas!"
Last month, on February 20, both Frances and her mother Love had posted tributes for Kurt for what would've been the late rocker's 53rd birthday. Love had posted a stark black-and-white portrait of Cobain with a guitar, while Frances had shared her own photo on her story of Kurt holding her as a child.
Frances is also a visual artist and keeps sharing her work with her fans on her page. She was also an executive producer on the HBO movie about her father's life, 'Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck'.
