In 2014, Austrian singer Thomas Neuwirth aka Conchita WURST won the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen and - with the victory slogan “We are unstoppable!” - became a global figurehead of the LGBTI community overnight. This was followed by the album “Conchita” (2015), numerous awards, performances and TV shows in more than 20 countries on four continents, a first solo tour with a live band (2016) as well as shows at the sold-out Sydney Opera, the Berlin Philharmonie, a BBC radio concert at the Palladium in London.

In 2018, he recorded the album  “From Vienna With Love” with Wiener Symphoniker, which reached gold status within one week after its release. In 2019, the third studio album will released, featuring electronic music under the project title WURST. These new songs are released individually, while a physical limited edition of the album on CD will be released later in the year. The new style is electronic, danceable, polarising at times, and always as close to the musician’s personal experiences as never before.
