BRIAN MAY has released a new Driven By You music video ahead of the re-release of his Back to the Light album, which he dedicates to late drummer Cozy Powell.
Before the August re-release of his Back to the Light album, Brian May has re-released his legendary solo track Driven By You. The 73-year-old highlighted the 2021 editing process and thanked all those involved during the live concerts 30 years ago when he shared the new music video for the single on social media. “I spent a good 9 hours on a gorgeous bright day, imprisoned in a dark edit suite, working with the brilliant Simon Lupton on this new production – which we made from two previous vids and some raw live footage from 1992!” the Queen guitarist posted on Instagram.
“We started by comparing the shots that had been chosen from the original video editing – by putting them side by side in two boxes,” Brian May explained.
“Then we realized we were having so much fun looking at the material in that way that we decided to utilize some of it in the final cut.
“And due to slight offsets in the synch, some of it tantalizingly generated some stereoscopic content if we let it.”
The Queen guitarist then paid respect to Cozy Powell, the late drummer for Driven By You.
“You see a lot of dear pals of mine in the film, to whom I owe so much…. the late great Cozy Powell there on drums – one of the most magnificent rock drummers of all time,” May wrote.
time, and a great friend who wholeheartedly supported my first faltering steps into a solo career. I’ve dedicated the edition of Back to the Light to Cozy, and I owe him a lifelong debt of gratitude.
He then went on to thank his other partners on the album Driven By You.
“Then you witness the legend that is Neil Murray – a pillar of strength in the original production of We Will Rock You at the Dominion London – and a sometime bass player of Whitesnake, Sabbath, and many other great hard rock bands.”
