Frances Bean Cobain To Make Singing Debut On Upcoming Record

You can’t say you didn’t see it coming. It seems like the next logical step, being the child of two of the most talked about musicians of the 90s. In case you were unaware, Frances Bean Cobain is the only child of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain.  Cobain of course broke onto the scene being the unofficial poster boy of the grunge movement as lead singer of Nirvana. Courtney Love had been in bands for years but found the most success with her own project Hole. She was poised to start making more of a name for herself to counteract the tabloid rumors that she was feeding off of Cobain’s success with “Live Through This” , but he committed suicide  mere weeks before Love was to set out on her tour in support of the album.

Over 15 years have passed since his death and while it’s not clear if his daughter plans to make this her career it is clear that fans are curious to see what the prodigal daughter has to offer. She will be singing on the upcoming debut from Evelyn Evelyn, which is the side project of Amanda Palmer of The Dresden Dolls. The album is due to be released on March 30, and the track that features Cobain is called “My Space” which also features Andrew WK, Weird Al and Gerard Way of My Chemical Romance. Other musicians on the album include Margaret Cho, Eugene Mirman and members of Mindless Self-Indulgence.
