Dirty Maria is Conchita Wurst’s last release in 2022, which the Austrian artist wrote together with Lukas Klement and Martin Zerza.
The song revolves around boundless greed and opens up a view into people’s abysses in the depths of their psyche in the balancing act between temptation and restraint, for which one always devises their own escape tactics.
“Our society constantly teaches and shows us that we can only be complete together with another person. That is also why I have too often made my personal well-being dependent on other people’s decisions, or on whether I get the confirmation I hope for from others. In the course of the song I ask myself »Do I need someone to be someone?« and come to the conclusion that it is time to discard this concept, because I am complete and whole,” Tom Neuwirth a.k.a. Conchita Wurst explains the background and the genesis of the song.
»All That I Wanted« is a fresh upbeat dance pop number. In it, the Austro-artist sings about the growth it takes within a relationship, which you relentlessly try to look for in partnerships that don’t work. “I wrote the song at a time when I was racking my brain as to why some relationships just don’t want to get going, when it could be so easy. In the meantime, I’ve learned what’s needed above all is the will to grow together, and that’s all that I wanted,” is how Tom Neuwirth a.k.a. Conchita Wurst describes the creation of the track.
“You unlearn the childlike lightness of being when you’re a teenager – especially a queer teenager – because society makes you feel like you’re not right. And then you spend the rest of your life throwing off these unnecessary insecurities and shields. It’s 2022, and we’re queer not only during Pride Month! It is high time to use every shopping street, every office corridor and every classroom as a catwalk and present yourself exactly the way you want to be! The track was once again created in collaboration with Lukas Klement (music, production) and Martin Zerza (music, lyrics).
“Every moment in life is ambivalent and has several sides. The only thing I can determine for myself is whether I train my perception to see the good or surrender to the abyss,” says Neuwirth, who wrote the song together with Lukas Klement and Martin Zerza. The fast-paced pop music video has also been released, and exclusive making-of videos will gradually be published on the new video platform WURSTTV.com.
Conchita Wurst features on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack of Austria’s movie “Der Onkel (The Hawk)” by Michael Ostrowski with a cover version of Udo Jürgens’ “Ich weiß, was ich will”.
“Every day I would love to wake up and realize that we as a global society have just dreamt a collective nightmare. I wish that all people could live in peace and freedom, regardless of the lottery of which country borders and which body they happen to be born into,” says Tom Neuwirth.

‘Truth Over Magnitude’ means WURST values authenticity above all else and walks his own way without any compromises. His album will be released in autumn 2019, you can preorder it today.
“Under The Gun” conveys the restlessness WURST feels and is the last single to be released before the full album drops.
“Forward” not only stands for the artist’s inner urge for constant creative and personal development, it also encourages listeners to take responsibility and to firmly stand in for the things that are important to them. The song directs the view into a self-determined future in which no one has to ask for permission to live their life according to their own rules.
With his new song “To The Beat” he wants to encourage the listener to go through life with purpose and their heads held high, to trust their own rhythm, and achieve a maximum of personal freedom by deliberately ignoring defeatists in every way.
“See Me Now” is WURST’s new electro-ballad and the third single from the upcoming album “Truth Over Magnitude” due to be released later this year.
“Hit Me” is WURST’s brand-new, dynamic song and the second single off the Album “Truth Over Magnitude”.
