In a world where drag queens lip sync for their lives, Conchita Wurst is a stunning one-off.

And on Wednesday she proved it yet again when she shared the demo version of her upcoming single “Blue Bloom” — a collaboration with Austrian singer-songwriter Maria Burger.

Showing off the stunning vocals that catapulted her to victory at Eurovision 2014, Conchy seems to feel every single note of this folksy number, which weaves through themes of love and the power of remembrance.

In the song Conchita offers a salvo to someone experiencing loss.

“Only the beauty should remain, that’s what I wish for, I wish that your smile stays the same, although she’s no more,” she says. “I’ll send you the silence that you need to hear her laughter, the most beautiful echo on repeat throughout the hereafter.”

Flowers seem like an apt vehicle to convey the song’s message — they sprout, they flourish and they inevitably die, hopefully experiencing the “love that never stops” that Conchita invokes in the song.

Variety defined Conchita’s self-titled debut album, which included 12 tracks that spanned electro-dance (“Firestorm”), pop-swing realness (“Where Have All the Good Men Gone”) and orchestral-baroque pop (“You Are Unstoppable”).

“Blue Bloom” goes in yet another direction, serving up delightful harmonies and a heartfelt, folksy quality.

Conchita, who recently performed at Amsterdam Pride, has clearly been busy behind-the-scenes and preparing new music. Are you looking forward to hearing the final version of this track? And which genre do you most want to hear Conchita tackle on her next album? Let us know in the comments box below.

Best song from Conchita so far <3

Conchita’s song touches the depth of the soul, when I listened to it for the first time, I cried almost from the first word and sound. Well, maybe with her stunning dramatical talent and voice she could sing even just “La-la-la” and make the audience cry… But for me this particular song is very special, very intimate and very sincere. And this simple accoustic version with the guitar is something very unusual and new for Conchita. She shows “the other side of her”, I really like that there’s nothing more in this song than guitar music, Conchita’s voice and her… Read more »

This song is not perfect, but it is called a demo version for a reason. And Conchita is only at the beginning of her songwriting career. She was very nervous presenting this to us during her live chat. In the end, all that matters is if a song is touching people’s hearts. I love “Blue Bloom” and I also love Maria Burger’s voice.

I like the song. I guess it’s far from finished and I think it was great that she shared it with us in this way. She seemed genuinely nervous (which she rarely does) so I guess this means a lot to her. And I like her all the better for that. Go Conchita !

Confessedly I´m a fan of Mrs.Wurst since her ESC2014-appearance & I would appreciate to have this song on her 2nd album, although not needed a final version from it. This rough draft only with guitar is beautiful & very touching. I´m not sure, which genre would be fitting the best for Conchita. But why not continuing trying out in various styles? IMO she has a huge advantage – she doesn´t only sing, she suffers & loves in & with her songs and her voice touches me like only a few other artists.

And I don’t need a studio version or something else. I think that vocal version of this song is so wonderful, should be on the new album simply so.

Beautiful lyrics, Conchita is talented in songwriting too. Her powerful voice and guitar sound so good together. I just love this song. And I’m looking forward to hear final version.

Not a great song and folk is a weird genre for her. The fans of course will swallow anything she throws at them and say it’s a ‘masterpiece’, and you can tell that by the comments here — over the top and so ridiculously flowery about a very average song. But that’s what you get from people who don’t really understand music. They just blow smoke up her a**. Let’s just hope her entire new album isn’t all like this. I do like her, and I do own her first album, but I wouldn’t buy a second album of this… Read more »
