The Queen of Austria aka Conchita Wurst is all set to conquer the world once again come May. She will be releasing her debut album Conchita on 15 May. The reigning Eurovision winner has a busy schedule ahead of her next month.
Fans all over the world have waited for this moment and now they will be rewarded accordingly. From power ballads to dance floor fillers, from Swing to Pop, the winner of 2014’s Eurovision Song Contest shows the full range of her talents on her debut album, which is simply titled Conchita.
Besides her hits Rise like a Phoenix, Heroes and You are unstoppable, the album holds many gems for her fans to explore: Songs like Colours of your love and Firestorm with their driving beats, the oriental influences on Out of body experience, while Where have all the good men gone boasts a swinging brass section, and fans of spectacular ballads will enjoy Pure.
The album’s musical range was very important to Conchita and she goes on to say:
This album is very close to my heart because this is my first solo album and therefore this is extremely thrilling and exciting. I am delighted that the album has become so colourful and multifaceted. All my favourite musical genres found their way onto the album. “Conchita” covers all the bases, from dramatic ballads to dance tracks.
After her victory in Copenhagen in May 2014, Conchita Wurst now tops off a successful and turbulent year with her new longplayer. Her fans have always been at her side, be it at her performance at the Crazy Horse, her performances at the European Parliament and in front of the UNO with Ban Ki-moon, on Jean Paul Gaultier’s runway, on the red carpet of the Golden Globe Awards, or at the Amadeus Austrian Music Awards 2015, where she won three awards (Female artist of the year, Song of the year – Rise like a Phoenix, Video of the year – Heroes).
Conchita knew instantly who she dedicates her album to:
First and foremost, I dedicate this album to my fans who supported me throughout this entire last year and I hope they like it just as much as I do.
Dietmar Lienbacher (Division Head Austria, Sony Music Entertainment):
Conchita’s debut album is as versatile as the album’s artist herself. It impressively shows how multifaceted, wide-ranging, and peerless Conchita is as an artist.
The album Conchita will be available in stores on May 15. The videoclip of her new single You are unstoppable was released few days back.
