Rocker Jack White has a new solo album, ‘Blunderbuss,’ reaching shelves on April 24, and in an effort to promote it, he’ll host an online concert that can be streamed to fans. That’s not so unusual. Here’s what is: The concert will be directed by ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ star Gary Oldman.

The Oscar nominee will participate as part of American Express’ ‘Unstaged’ program, which pairs musicians with renowned filmmakers, according to HitFix. This will be the first installment in the third “season” of the concert series, and will be streamed online from Webster Hall in New York City on April 27. Acts who have participated in the past include Coldplay, My Morning Jacket, Arcade Fire and Mary J. Blige.

Who knew Oldman was such a fan? Or a filmmaker? Granted, the acting legend has been on an impressive streak lately, earning his first Oscar nod for his fantastic work in ‘Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy.’ He’s also an integral part in Chris Nolan’s ‘Dark Knight’ world, and has a part in the anticipated ‘Lawless’ with Tom Hardy and Shia LaBeouf.

But his only directorial credit prior to this is the 1997 title ‘Nil By Mouth,’ so this is unexpected. We’re eager to see if Oldman can break the mold of the concert movie. Why else would White go with him, right?
