He is one of the many artists returning from the 2020 season. Now, Austria’s Vincent Bueno has confirmed that his song “Amen” will drop on Wednesday 10 March.
Vincent Bueno will release “Amen” on 10 March
He announced the date in this Instagram post and expressed his excitement. He writes:
“Amen will be released on 10.03. 🙈#soexcited
3) Fall / Winter
What‘s your favorite season? 1,2,3?
I love Summer the most, coz I need to feel that heat #portrait #studio #lablife #studiolife #canon”
The announcement is accompanied by three editorial style images, one of him in a t-shirt for spring, another topless for summer, and the last in a heavy coat for winter.
After a relatively long period of silence from the “Alive” singer, this is actually the latest news in a short time about his entry. About a week ago, the title of his song was revealed by ORF talent scout Eberhard Forcher. Instagram seems to be his preferred platform to share his road to Rotterdam with his fans. He published various videos and photos from the studio.

There is no teaser or snippet of the song so far. However, Vincent hinted in another post, that guitars may be a part of the song.
Vincent Bueno will sing “Amen” for Austria at Eurovision 2021
There is an experienced team behind “Amen”. Vincent worked with international hitmakers on his Eurovision song. Jonas Thander — who has worked with Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift and Sergey Lazarev — serves as the lead producer on “Amen”.
Also credited are Swiss producer Pele Loriano and British songwriter Ashley Hicklin. Together, they co-wrote Jurij Veklenko’s “Run With The Lions”. As well, Ashley has many Eurovision credits to his name, including Blas Cantó’s “Universo” and Tom Dice’s “Me and My Guitar”.
Additionally, creative visionary Marvin Dietmann will stage “Amen” in Rotterdam. In 2014, Marvin staged Conchita Wurst’s winning performance of “Rise Like a Phoenix”. Marvin is also staging the Cypriot entry from Elena Tsagrinou at Eurovision 2021
Vincent Bueno at Eurovision
Vincent Bueno began his Eurovision journey in 2016, when he competed in the Austrian national final with “All We Need is That Love”. Then in 2017, he provided backing vocals at Eurovision for Nathan Trent on “Running On Air”.
In 2020, ORF internally selected Vincent Bueno to represent Austria at Eurovision 2021 with his soulful dance-pop track “Alive”. But his Eurovision dreams were snatched away when the 2020 contest was cancelled in light of COVID-19 restrictions.
As we know now, he won’t be the only “Amen” singing act on stage. Slovenia’s Ana Soklič released her song last week that shares the title with Vincent. A similar situation occurred in 2015 when Malta and Georgia both sent songs named “Warrior”.
