In 1992, Queen guitarist Brian May stepped out on his own for his first proper solo album, Back to the Light — and the record has been revisited today, Aug. 6, for a near-30th anniversary re-release.

May recently shared a new music video for “Driven By You,” one of the album’s singles, as a preview of the new edition. Originally written for a Ford car commercial, the anthemic song sounds great in its new remastered version:
