WURST – the new alter ego of Eurovision 2014 winner Conchita – is unstoppable! With an ever-evolving look and a thumping electronic sound, Tom Neuwirth is yet again pushing the boundaries of his new persona with three new singles — “Forward“, “See Me Now” and “To The Beat”.

Each of the songs will feature on the Austrian singer’s upcoming third album Truth Over Magnitude, along with previous releases “Trash All The Glam” and “Hit Me”.

“Forward”, the most recent, and perhaps the most topical of these three singles, has been released to coincide with WURST’s appearance at the Life Ball in Vienna this weekend. It is a song that addresses Tom Neuwirth’s personal development, whilst encouraging listeners to take responsibility in affirming the things that matter to them.

WURST – “Forward”

In “See Me Now”, WURST delves deeper into his emotional self.  The electronic musical composition here cradles the star’s belting vocals. Built around looping verses of “coos”, soaring synths and a drum kit, “See Me Now” exposes Tom’s vulnerability during his musical evolution, whilst showcasing a more contemporary sound.

“To The Beat” is the most club-friendly of these three tracks. The visuals of the music video nod to a fairytale, but the message here remains consistent with his other tracks and is equally empowering: “Cover my ears, I will still hear the beat / Put me in chains, I will still feel all free / Cut off my legs, I will still walk ahead / Give up on me, ’cause I will still lead”.

WURST – “To the Beat”

The Austrian singer’s much awaited new LP Truth Over Magnitude, set to be released at the end of October this year, has been produced by Albin Janoska and co-written with Eva Klampfer. The album will hone in on the overall theme that no one should have to ask for permission to live their life according to their own rules.

In addition, WURST is also involved as an official ambassador for EuroPride, which is currently taking place in Vienna during the first two weeks of June 2019. In this role, he will appear during the parade and perform on the main stage on Saturday June 15th.

To the Beat it’s so disturbing (in a bad way) with the dolls and the child.

I think it is a reference to his childhood. The attic was a special room for him…

Easy to say “reference to my childhood”, but he is aware what many people will see in this. They are aware they’re delivering for… NOT innocent minds.

Conchita looks a bit like that Portugese singer, don’t you think?

It’s so… timid. Yes, the beat, boost and strings are there, but it all sounds so simple. I don’t understand the act, but I love his voice. But this doesn’t do him justice IMHO.

To be honest: it’s no Kylie anno “Fever” or Cher’s “Believe”, or even Madonna’s “Confessions On A Dancefloor”. He should go all BANG! He’s keeping it small, IMHO. While we all know: he can do/go better! 🙂

Hate the new look, hate the new music. Give him a couple of years and he’ll be done. He was something amazing as Conchita. But WURST is just a dud, and the new music is terrible.

Did Madonna get inspiration from Conchita or the other way around?

As a big fan of Conchita WURST I do love all of the new songs! If I should pick a favourite, it is “To the Beat” ? I do like his new style as well, he’s ‘trashing all the glam’ and doing exactly what he wants! He likes to experiment and try out new things, that’s it! He’s a great singer and entertainer! ?

I loved the From Vienna With Love Album.
Not a fan of his latest released from the upcoming album
Not a fan of the new look. You don’t build a brand up and then discontinue it and replace it with something lackluster.
By all means keep the character Conchita Wurst fresh. But you’ve abandoned the character altogether and that’s career suicide. If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it.

I think Tom is still retaining Conchita for some of his songs, but WURST for others

Please Conchita, don’t sell your soul to these people. You were such a game changer for Europe. Why this?

No matter who – Conchita or WURST – he is so damn talented and creative. I love this new electro-pop sound and I can’t wait to listen his new album ?

He’s more electropop now, and that’s an interesting change.
