Just under a month since Frances Bean Cobain revealed that she has concrete plans to embark on her own music career, the 25-year-old has shared an updates version of her first original tune, while promising that more music is in the pipeline.

Taking to Instagram recently, Cobain shared a video of herself playing an as-yet-untitled song, which was first previewed on the social media platform just over a month ago.

An impassioned acoustic number, the track is a little more indie-folk than we would’ve come to expect from the daughter of one of rock’s late legends, but it undoubtedly shows that vast amount of talent that runs in the Cobain family.

However, after being asked by a fan whether or not she would be releasing a full song sometime in the future, Cobain responded simply by saying “oh yes,” indicating that this is just the first taste of her budding musical career.

While Frances Bean Cobain has been releasing a few short covers in the past, including Jimmy Eat World’s ‘The Middle’ and Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hallelujah’, this is the only original song we’ve heard by her so far.

Prior to this teasing of her musical career, Cobain spoke to E! at a red carpet event recently, where she confirmed that she has a future in the world of 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 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.”

So while we might have a little while to wait before we see another Cobain in our record collections, you can rest assured knowing that the future is set to feature some new tunes from Frances Bean.
