Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has hinted at a battle with depression on My Own Cobain, a bonus track taken from the band's forthcoming album, Gold Cobra.
Fred - who has a portrait of the late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain tattooed on his chest - says that he recognises the struggles that the grunge icon was facing before committing suicide in Seattle on April 5, 1994.
"I try not to elaborate too much on the metaphors, but here's something I haven't told a lot of people," Fred tells Kerrang!. "We have an older song called It'll Be OK [from 2000's Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water]. It's directly about me fantasising inside of the depression of someone with a tortured mind, like Kurt Cobain. I really connect with him. I have my own torture.
"I've been impacted by his poetry, his philosophies and music, obviously," he adds. "On this new song, it's another way into my depression and expression of that turmoil."
Gold Cobra will be released on June 27.
