be forewarned , these are clips of a very sad song but it’s raw and truthful so i wanted to share it. I know you weren’t meant to stay in this place Sometimes I find it hard to look at My own face Maybe one day I will talk to you If I’m lucky it won’t be too soon They say I’m soft and resemble an Angel What happens to angels When they die Music coming soonish y’all. thanks for the continued interest and words of encouragement. I see them all and they make my heart full
Although this isn’t the first time Cobain has posted a video of herself performing, this one in particular sparked interest in many of her followers thanks to its cryptic background.
While the song does not explicitly address the Smells Like Teen Spirit rocker by name, the meaning seems to revolve around an impactful death.
Kurt Cobain died by suicide in 1994. His daughter was only 18 months old when he died.
“I know you weren’t meant to stay in this place,” she sang. “Sometimes I find it hard to look at my own face / Maybe one day I will talk to you / If I’m lucky it won’t be too soon.”
“They say I’m soft and resemble an angel,” she continued in the tune. “What happens to angels when they die?”
Since initially posting clips of her original compositions, Cobain has seemingly gained a lot of traction over social media. “Music coming soonish y’all,” she added.
“Beautiful. You sound so good. So proud to watch you go on this journey, sharing your art,” he wrote with a heart emoji.
“Your falsetto is gorgeous,” commented musician Charlotte Kemp Muhl.
In response, the younger Cobain thanked her followers for their support. “Thanks for the continued interest and words of encouragement,” she wrote. “I see them all and they make my heart full.”
As of this writing, there have been no announcements regarding an official Frances Bean Cobain release.
