Lin-Manuel Miranda Announces Release of The Hamilton Instrumentals
All of our Hamilton sing-along party dreams are coming true.
Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda announced this morning in a digital #Ham4Ham (which inexplicably features a lurking Jonathan Groff) that The Hamilton Instrumentals, as well as an authorized sing-along program that can be organized royalty free by fans around the globe, are now available.
Atlantic Records released The Hamilton Instrumentals as a companion to the Grammy Award-winning Broadway cast recording, which is available at all digital retailers and streaming services. The original Broadway cast recording is executive produced by Ahmir "Questlove" Thompson and Tariq "Black Thought" Trotter, founding members of the Grammy Award-winning hip-hop group, The Roots.
The sing-along program was made popular by gatherings in Los Angeles known as HAMILTUNES LA. The producers of Hamilton have authorized a free sing-along program for groups of fans everywhere to come together publicly and celebrate the musical. The production will provide a free license to use the HAMILTUNES name and logo to promote sing-along parties and events. To arrange an authorized public sing-along party or event in your area, contact [email protected] with the subject line "Hamiltunes" (include your city in the subject line).
With book, music, and lyrics by Lin-Manuel 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 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.
