Hamilton is a juggernaut that just never stops getting bigger. You know the actors, you know the songs, and chances are, you were probably one of the sad souls that missed out on numerous ticket lotteries for the Broadway smash. Its rise to its already-legendary status is truly remarkable, and now it’s getting even better thanks to a mixtape brought to you by Lin-Manuel Miranda.
A mixtape has been in the works for quite a while now, and Miranda has dished the details on what to expect from the star-studded collection featuring some of the biggest artists covering Hamilton’s cuts. The compilation, which goes out for pre-order tomorrow, has the likes of Sia, Alicia Keys and Chance The Rapper as part of the massive 25 song collection. Kelly Clarkson will be tackling “It’s Quiet Uptown,” while John Legend adds his touch to “History Has Its Eyes On You.” The track listing can be seen in full here.
Not only is the idea of a Hamilton mixtape awesome, but being able to hear incredible musicians one after the other is exciting all on its own. Seems like Lin-Manuel Miranda nailed it on this one, and the best part is that you won’t have to empty out your wallet to experience it.
