Miranda releases another cut song from his beloved musical.
Lin-Manuel Miranda has released to his SoundCloud account another cut song from Hamilton.
"It's a 3rd rap battle I wrote for Jefferson, for that first concert we did at Lincoln Center, after the Reynolds Pamphlet. It was never performed," Miranda tweeted. Listen to his "Discarded Jefferson Battle #3" below.
With book, music, and lyrics by Miranda, direction by Thomas Kail, choreography by Andy Blankenbuehler, and music direction and orchestrations by Alex Lacamoire, Hamilton is based on Ron Chernow's biography of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. The musical tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, an immigrant from the West Indies who became George Washington's right-hand man during the Revolutionary War, and was the new nation's first treasury secretary. The musical won 11 Tony Awards including Best Musical, Score, Book of a Musical, Direction of a Musical, Choreography, and Orchestrations.
