BIOGRAPHY

The Austrian singer Thomas Neuwirth created the stage character Conchita Wurst in 2011. The bearded diva won the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen for Austria and became a global figurehead of the LGBTI community overnight with her victory slogan “We are unstoppable!”. In 2019, the third studio album is released, featuring – for the very first time – electronic music under the project title WURST. These new soundscapes were developed by Neuwirth in close collaboration with Eva Klampfer (Lylit, lyrics & music) and Albin Janoska (producer & co-author). The new style is more electronic, danceable, yet polarising at times – and always very close to the musician’s personal experiences. After the platinum-certified debut “Conchita” (2015) and “From Vienna With Love” (2018), recorded with the Wiener Symphoniker, the 3rd album ‘Truth Over Magnitude’ was be released on October 25th, 2019.

With WURST, Thomas Neuwirth opens a new chapter and emphasizes the contrasts of both musical worlds even further, by no longer presenting Conchita and WURST as a dual role but unadulteratedly living out the two different facets of his stage character from now on: Conchita, the polite and feminine media icon known for her brilliantly captivating glam-pop and diva songs. WURST, on the other hand, the masculine, uncompromising electro-newcomer, who seems to care for no one’s opinion and delivers sexy, driving, and thoroughly danceable soundscapes but reveals more about Neuwirth and his life in his lyrics than it was ever possible for the unapproachable character of Conchita.
