"Rise Like A Phoenix" is the 007-esque ballad from Austria's contestant

Conchita Wurst, Austria's entry to this year's Eurovision Song Contest has a video of her song, "Rise Like a Phoenix," which was announced at a press conference in Vienna today.

"Rise Like A Phoenix," a power ballad that would be well suited to be a James Bond theme, was written by Charly Mason, Joey Patulka, Ali Zuckowski and Julian Maas. 

Haven't met Conchita before? She's the drag persona of Tom Neuwirth, a 25 year old former boy band member who came to the country’s attention after appearing on the talent show Die Große Chance in 2011.

The Eurovision contest is in Copenhagen this year, and the grand finale will be May 10. You can still buy tickets to the competition here.
