Frances Bean Cobain has showcased her vocal talents again on Instagram.

The daughter of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love has covered Yusuf Islam/Cat Stevens' The Wind.

Watch her rendition of the 1971 track, which sees her accompanied on the guitar by her friend and fellow artist Ben Jaffe.

Cat Stevens - who was born Steven Demetre Georgiou and took on the name Yusuf Islam after becoming a Muslim in the late 70s - praised the budding singer-songwriter, writing in the comments: "Stay true to your soul".

The praise was followed up by Frances Bean's own rocker mother, who called her rendition perfect, commenting: "Ahhh in dentist chair but flying through the window !! Over the fields ! Far away !! Gorgeously perfect !!!"

Listen to the original Cat Stevens song here:

It's by no means the first time that Frances has shared her music online.

Back in June the artist shared the latest of her original music, which she calls a "very sad song" and appears to address her father’s suicide

The lyrics read: "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"

The 26-year-old also debuted a new shorter haircut at this time, looking every much like her rock star dad.

Frances has previously opened up about the impact of her late father's death, who tragically lost his life to suicide in 1994.

As reported by the Daily Mail in 2018, she attended the Museum of Style Icons' Growing Up Kurt Cobain exhibition in Ireland on Tuesday with her grandmother Wendy O'Connor and aunt Kim Cobain.

Opening up about her father, she told Reuters: "He's unavoidable in my life, I see a Nirvana shirt every day."

The 25-year-old added: "My dynamic with Kurt is probably more similar to a fan's dynamic as there's almost like an untouchable thing. All the information I have [about him] is from stories. He's there every day of my life."

She continued: "On some days it feels a little frustrating, like I've had emotional breakdowns in Ubers and he's come on [the radio] and I've been like, 'I needed you so much right now.'"It plays out on different days in different ways".
