Since Kurt Cobain’s tragic passing back in April of 1994, music fans seem to have vicariously lived through the actions of his daughter, Frances Bean, with many seeing her as the hopeful continuation of the art that Kurt created during his lifetime. Now, it seems as though we might be soon seeing a legitimate music career from the 25-year-old.

Over the last couple of years, we’ve seen Frances Bean Cobain cover a couple of classic tunes, including Jimmy Eat World’s ‘The Middle’ and Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, however just a week ago we saw the first original composition released by her.

Originally uploaded to Instagram (but since deleted), the original track sees Cobain singing an a capella verse, but as enough to show that she’s definitely got a lot of promise as a musical artist. So are we set to see  full-blown musical career soon? Well, if she has her own way, definitely.

Speaking to E! at a recent red carpet event, Cobain discussed her place in the world of the creative arts. “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 explained.

“So do I want to pursue my music further and see it come to fruition and see something further and see something palpable? Absolutely.”

While Frances Bean Cobain noted that the Instagram post was definitely not her first official release of music, she was also questioned about what her father might have thought about the music that she’s making.

“I don’t have an answer for that because I don’t want to speak on someone else’s behalf,” said Cobain. “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.”

So while we might not be getting any official music just yet, we can definitely say that there are plans to see a Cobain release music once again.
