"Directed by Pasqual Gutierrez, the clip for the first song the rocker wrote for his forthcoming third solo record was filmed in Los Angeles and Nashville a year ago". But what sets "Connected By Love" apart is its earnest in sentiment and overblown arrangements.

After teasing fans with a freakish new video in December, the former White Stripes frontman has now confirmed that he'll release the follow-up to 2014's Lazaretto via Third Man Records and Columbia.

A thought-provoking companion visual accompanies "Connected by Love", filmed in Los Angeles and Nashville by director Pasqual Gutierrez. But this same, potentially devastating event, reminds every one of the ties that bind.

It's certainly a disarming new guise for White, who opens the track with throbs of unexpected, menacing synth. The indie rock god dropped "Connected By Love", a searing, organ-lined plea to a former flame, and "Respect Commander", a thunderous guitar track that manages to sneak in an ode for White's hometown of Detroit's storied techno past.

UFC 221: Robert Whittaker issues statement on withdrawal from Luke Rockhold bout
Romero was originally scheduled to take on David Branch on February 24 as part of UFC on Fox in Orlando, Florida. Those wins included victories over Chris Weidman , Ronaldo Souza and Lyoto Machida .

White expertly pivots through it all - plus an eye-watering guitar solo - before stripping it down to a basic piano line and then bringing everything back in again for a climactic, if rather staid, finale.

White's last solo record was Lazaretto, released in 2014.

A companion track is entitled "Respect Commander".
