Lin-Manuel Miranda drops new ‘Hamilton’ track amid coronavirus anxiety

Lin-Manuel Miranda just wants to help. 

On Thursday, the Hamilton creator dropped a never-before-heard song from his Tony Award-winning musical in an effort to calm fans amid the coronavirus outbreak. Notably, all Broadway productions have been stopped as a social distancing precaution and will not return until April 12. Numerous other Hamilton performances in the U.S., including dates in San Francisco and Los Angeles, have been canceled.

“Wish I could send you peace of mind via this app,” Miranda said in a tweet, following other statements of concern for those affected by COVID-19 he had posted earlier in the day. 

“Alas. But I can send you music no one’s heard. Here’s a cut Hamilton/Washington tune called I Have This Friend. No one’s heard it, not even [Hamilton director Thomas] Kail.” 

The cut track is a Hamilton and Washington duet that would have originally taken place before “The Reynolds Pamphlet” — where the company number “Hurricane” occurs. 

In the song’s description on SoundCloud, Miranda wrote: “Stay safe out there. Love you.”

You too, buddy. You too.
