The Business Post is reporting that Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain has signed a two-album deal with Columbia Records, and her first album is due soon.
Cobain has been teasing new song ideas all years, most famously a song that appeared to be about her late father that she posted a clip of on April 5th, the 24th anniversary of his death by suicide in 1994.
Frances Bean Cobain discussed going to Ireland to attend the Growing Up Kurt Cobain premiere event in a new Independent interview.
“I think that it was important for all of us three to come to Ireland. This is where our roots are. It’s a very healing place,” she says.
“I’ve been here before and it was super healing for me as a child and I wanted to come and be a part of this experience with them. I don’t know if we could recreate the energy of this specific trip again. The reason that this is so healing is because it’s in Ireland. That’s a huge component of it I believe.”
Kurt believed his ancestors had come to the United States from Cork, but in recent years Courtney traced the family’s Irish roots to Tyrone and a man called Samuel Cobain who emigrated on a ‘graveyard ship’ with his wife Letitia and brother Kevin in the late 1800s.
As Frances reads a text message from Courtney with this information she laughs, “This information may not be accurate!”
