Eurovision 2014 winner Conchita has recorded an album together with the Wiener Symphoniker under the name 'From Vienna with Love'; and it includes a brand new version of her winning song 'Rise Like a Phoenix'!

Conchita's remarkable collaboration with the Wiener Symphoniker started when they performed together at the Vienna Festival in 2017. Inspired by their succes, they decided to team up again to record 12 songs for the joint album From Vienna with Love.
The album includes beloved ballads and heartfelt songs of divas – symphonically arranged for the unique sound of the traditional Viennese orchestra and masterfully interpreted by Austria’s breath-taking world star. It also includes a new 4:34 minute version of Rise Like A Phoenix, the song we all know Conchita for! Listen to a preview on her Instagram account:
Back in 2014, Conchita Wurst won the 59th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Copenhagen for Austria with the song Rise Like A Phoenix and became a global icon for the LGBT community along her victory line: "We are unstoppable!"
Born on the 6th of November in 1988, the Austrian Tom Neuwirth sang all his life. But in 2011 things take a turn, when he performed for the first time as his alter ego Conchita Wurst. Since then, Conchita has been the spokesperson to bring tolerance and artistic freedom in her home country and beyond: "Be the best version of yourself, rather than a bad copy of someone else!"

From Vienna with Love is out now. For more information, go to Conchita's website.
