Conchita Wurst is taking a break!

Vienna, 29 July 2022

After two years of pandemic and a subsequent cold start into weeks of intensive work and countless associated professional trips, Tom Neuwirth a.k.a. Conchita Wurst is feeling the same way in the current heat wave as probably most people do: we need a break! Conchita Wurst’s song “Erstmal Pause” (German “First, take a break!”) and the associated music video invite you to do nothing at all, at least for a moment, and surrender to the vibrations of summer – even if it’s only for a few minutes! At the beginning of September, Neuwirth’s new program “Music Impossible” will start airing on German public television ZDF.

Austrian artist Tom Neuwirth a.k.a. Conchita Wurst is leaving into the summer break with his new song “Erstmal Pause”. Like most people, he has been torn between lockdowns and high workloads for the last few years. Finally, with the current temperatures, there is almost nothing left to do but sit back and do as southern European countries do: Take a break in August!

“Erstmal Pause” is Conchita Wurst’s fourth release this year and is available on all music streaming platforms as of today. The track was created in the tried and tested trio together with Lukas Klement (music, producer) and Martin Zerza (music, lyrics). The music video was created by Elisa Kroiss and is also available on Youtube today. Unlike the previous songs (All I Wanna Do, Car (I Don’t Have Like A Really Good Time) and Paris (Savoir-Vivre)), this time it is a song in German. “My team and I have already been working constantly during the pandemic, and the last few weeks we’ve been on the road virtually non-stop. Now we are happy that we can take a month off in the summer so that we can start again with fresh energy in the autumn,” says Neuwirth, looking forward to August.

“Music Impossible – My Song. Your Sound.” will start airing on ZDF on 2 September. In the musical entertainment program, two artists of different genres meet each other and have to produce their own song in the musical style of the other person and then perform it in front of a live audience. Schlager-legend Marianne Rosenberg and rapper Eko Fresh will kick-off the first episode. in the second heavy metal singer Doro Pesch and pop star Mike Singer try their hand at the other genre. Tom Neuwirth a.k.a. Conchita Wurst hosts the format, assists the artists with words and deeds and surprises them with additional tasks.

An extended version of the music video for “Erstmal Pause” by Elisa Kroiss has been published on Conchita Wurst’s own video-on-demand platform, where his fans can also watch countless behind-the-scenes videos, original series, fitness videos and other content that is not available anywhere else.
