Brian May shares his ‘insanely optimistic’ new music video for ‘On My Way Up’ – WATCH
Brian May has unveiled a brand new and innovative music video for his joyful solo On My Way Up. The release coincides with the deluxe reissue of the Queen legend’s previously unobtainable Another World album which has been released today. A special version of the track also features on the new version of the album which the 74-year-old is particularly fond of because “it’s very kind of rude and raw”. The coinciding On My Way Up video follows the 74-year old looking back nostalgically. And just like his Time Traveller one for Back To The Light, the past and present meet in heartwarming special effects.

‘It’s Intensely Personal’: Queen’s Brian May On His Solo Work
We chat with Queen guitarist Brian May about his brave solo albums ‘Back to the Light’ and ‘Another World.’
“Another World has lots of memories, some of them uplifting, some of them very sad, like losing Cozy,” says May. “I have a joyful memory of Taylor Hawkins playing on ‘Cyborg,’ a song I wrote for a video game called Rise of the Robots. Taylor drummed on it magnificently. He was a young boy and had only just joined the Foo Fighters. He played with such energy on ‘Cyborg.’ That’s also a painful memory now, because we lost him to that awful tragedy last month.”
