“Please bequest my last request,” she sings
Frances Bean Cobain has teased a brand new song, singing a short teaser in a post on Instagram.
Earlier this year, the singer said she thinks of herself as both a musician and a visual artist, adding that she she wants to release something “palpable” in the future when it comes to music.
“With regards to music, I don’t want to pigeon hole myself and say I am a musician or a visual artist because I feel like it’s all encompassing and I feel like every bit of my art is related to the other,” she said.
“So do I want to pursue my music further and see it come to fruition and see something further and see something palpable? Absolutely. Do I want to say that was an official release? No, it was an Instagram post.”
When asked what her late father would think of her diving into a music career, Frances replied: “I don’t have an answer for that because I don’t want to speak on someone else’s behalf. I would hope that he would be proud of the human being I am even if he didn’t like the art I am putting out. That’s all I would ask of anyone in my life.”
Frances marked the anniversary of her father’s death with another song back in April. 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.”
