(Newser) – Jack White will kick off the release of his first solo album with a concert streamed live online, to be directed by Gary Oldman. The show will be the first installment in the third season of American Express' "Unstaged" series, which pairs top musical acts with renowned filmmakers. White's concert at New York's Webster Hall will be streamed live April 27 (9pm EST) on VEVO.

A few days prior, on April 24, White will release Blunderbuss, the first solo album from the former White Stripe. The "Unstaged" series has drawn more than 70 million streams for performances from Arcade Fire, Coldplay, Mary J. Blige, and others. Though best known for his acting, Oldman directed the critically-acclaimed 1997 film Nil by Mouth.
