Conchita Love Yourself Justin Bieber

She closed out 2016 with a stirring and pared back cover of Jessie Ware’s “Champagne Kisses“.

And on Tuesday Eurovision 2014 winner Conchita Wurst continued to work her magic on existing songs, releasing a cover of Justin Beiber’s global hit “Love Yourself”.

Her first release of 2017 does not disappoint, once again demonstrating her power to make a song her own by adding emotion and some killer vocals.

“Love Yourself” — Conchita

Like many of her recent releases, Conchita takes a stripped back and acoustic approach.

The monochrome video features plenty of close-up shots of Conchita thinking about the lyrics of the song, which snakes through loss, pain, anger and self-belief.

As she mouths the lyrics you get the sense she is thinking of difficult times from her own life, creating a video that’s believable and powerful in its simplicity.

The queen of Austria is joined by Severin Trogbacher who provides backing vocals and the guitar accompaniment. It’s a collaboration we hope to see and hear more of.

Conchita fans will undoubtedly be waiting for more new releases in 2017. Could her latest series of releases be the calm before the storm?

What do you think of Conchita’s cover of “Love Yourself”? Do you want to see more acoustic covers from the Austrian diva? Let us know in the comments below.

@George: No, Conchita, as artistic figure, is actually a girl. The person behind Conchita, Tom, is a man.

Why do you all keep saying SHE has a beautiful voice or HER voice is amazing. Don’t be shy, say HE has a beautiful voice and HIS voice is amazing. Conchita is a boy, and that will never change, no matter what he do.

I can see why the song was a hit, but I’d prefer to hear something original.

I’m still loving her beard after 2 years XD. I’d prefer this cover over any of Justin Bieber’s songs (though maybe it’s because I just don’t like the personality he has in public). The best part of this cover is from 2:42 to 3:00 for me. I love the way she makes those “duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh”s (idk why) :).
