Brian May Explains How To Use The Lesser Known Feature Of Instagram That Delivers Stereo Sound
Queen lead guitarist Brian May shared a post on his official Instagram page revealing an unknown feature of Instagram in addition to promoting his fellow musician Arielle’s brand new single, ‘Peace of Mind’ in which she debuts asymmetric Brian May Guitars signature model.
As many of you know, Brian May and Arielle’s relationship started when she was handpicked by May himself for a key role in the London-based musical, ‘We Will Rock You’ which was a production based on the songs of Queen. Since then, May has been praising Arielle and appreciates her whenever he has the chance.
Back in 2019, Brian May Guitars had crafted its first electric guitar for another guitar player after exclusively building only for May, a guitar named ‘Arielle,’ built for Arielle. although she revealed the special guitar on her official Youtube channel, fans did not have the opportunity to see the guitar while she’s playing.
Arielle released a brand new single in addition to the music video of ‘Peace of Mind’ nearly a week ago on her official Youtube channel, from her upcoming album, ‘Analog Girl In A Digital World,’ which is going to be released on May 7, the video also featured ‘Arielle’ guitar for the first time.
Recently, Brian May shared a video on her official Instagram page promoting the brand new single of Arielle in addition to revealing to his fans that the asymmetric Brian May Guitars signature model made its debut with the brand new music video.
In addition to this, Brian May also revealed an unknown fact about Instagram which emerged from answering a question from his fans. May often shares video horizontal rather than vertical, apparently, the reason behind this is because Instagram actually provides stereo sound if you turn your phone in its side.
Here is what May said:
“ARIELLE !!! 💥💥💥💥 Listen again with the phone on its side !!! This is such a beautiful new single – from her forthcoming album to be released in May. You can see the whole vid at https://youtu.be/dZfUC4nuK7U. Meanwhile, check out Arielle’s great tracks on YouTube and her featured appearance on the new Kings Daughters single. AND !!! The new Brian May Guitars ARIELLE is now previewing on the BMG website – see link in my SLINK in my Bio. 💥💥💥💥 People ask me why I post sideways on IG ?!!! I’ll tell you because not many people seem to know this !! Instagram delivers STEREO SOUND !! But you only hear it if you turn the phone ON ITS SIDE !!! This is a great example. Turn the phone horizontal and put your head close up to it. Enjoy the great STEREO !!! Love those clanging 12-Strings !!! 💥💥💥💥 Of course, the other reason to post sideways is that it’s much better visually for landscape format material – the letter-box shape comes out very small in Instagram used in the normal way. On IG stories (and Reels, I guess) it’s even better because you get more width to play with and the picture can come out nice and big !! Bri”
