The always-radiant Conchita Wurst is preparing for the release of her self-titled debut album later this month and has not scaled back on the effort’s extensive promotion since winning Eurovision 2014 with a show-stopping performance of “Rise Like A Phoenix”, an empowering pop ballad which showcased Wurst’s impressive vocal talents.
Following the album’s official singles, “Heroes” and “You Are Unstoppable”, the artist has shared another cut from the anticipated project. “Somebody To Love” is a soft yet powerful offering where the Austrian singer admits to simply longing for someone to hold. The production is scaled back for the song’s intro, only Wurst‘s delicate vocals are heard, but all elements come together harmoniously on the chorus, which carries the new effort to the “pop perfection” status.
“I tell myself I’m living, but really I just long, for somebody to love, just give into the feeling, that we could have it all,” the artist sings on the track’s uplifting and joyous hook before a crash of synths envelops the listener. It’s a sparkling pop moment that should quickly silence even the harshest of Wurst‘s critics.
“Somebody To Love” is as “pop” as they come. With a beautiful vocal performance, a choir-supported chorus that feels like rays of sunshine peeking from behind the clouds and some infectious 80s-sounding background production, the new Conchita track may have the most potential for future radio airplay . After one listen, the song demands to remain on repeat and still brings a smile every single time.
