A Secret Hamilton Song Just Came Out and We’re Here for It

The Ben Franklin tune hits just in time for the final <em>Hamilton</em> shows in L.A.

Lin-Manuel MirandaHamilton creator and beloved national treasure, left quite a bit of material on… well, whatever the live theater equivalent of the cutting room floor would be. And now those songs are finding new life and seeing the light of day.

While the show’s run in L.A. may be wrapping up, today at least we finally got to hear “Ben Franklin’s Song” (also known, in the less-clean version, as “Benjamin F’ing Franklin”), via NPR’s All Songs Considered. The track was recorded by aughties indie rockers The Decemberists.
