“The Funeral Of Orlandas Banks” is the latest offering from New Orleans artist Alfred Banks‘ upcoming album, The Beautiful. In the emotional visuals (directed by Ghostmonster), Banks recreates his brother Orlandas’ memorial. For those of you who are unaware, Alfred Banks lost his older brother Orlandas not very long ago. His brother battled with Schizophrenia and eventually took his own life.
On March 20th, Alfred Banks will release his album The Beautiful, a full-length tribute to his late brother. On the album, each song serves as an individual chapter examining the development of schizophrenia in Alfred himself. Though he doesn’t suffer from the illness in real life, the album’s concept serves to illustrate the steps in the disease in an effort to educate others about how schizophrenia can manifest itself.
