Alfred Banks is currently planning to release his new album, but is doing so in a special way. Conceptually “The Beautiful” will focus on Schizophrenia and how it can affect oneself. To start Alfred releases the highly personal “The Funeral of Orlandas Banks”, a song written in dedication to his brother. Produced by CZA, the single takes us back to Orlandas’ home going after his battle with Schizophrenia took its toll. In a culture that doesn’t always address these types of mental issues in our community I commend Alfred Banks for going against the norm. Look out for “The Beautiful” March 20th.
