'The Hamilton Mixtape' Lyrics: Words for every new song off the Broadway album


Fans of Lin-Manuel Miranda's hit Broadway musical, Hamilton, have reason to be excited, as The Hamilton Mixtape is now available for purchase. The newly released album features several popular artists covering various songs from the hit musical. 

While only now being released, the mixtape has been in development for quite some time. In fact, Lin-Manuel Miranda originally conceived the musical telling of Alexander Hamilton as an album rather than a musical. 

"I was going to write a concept album called The Hamilton Mixtape, wherein I would write some songs that were like highlights of Hamilton's life, a la Jesus Christ Superstar or Evita, and then someone would figure out how to stage it later," the artist explained to Entertainment Weekly

Broadway fans are certainly happy that Miranda was able to tell his story through the Broadway medium, as the musical, which chronicles the life of Alexander Hamilton, won a whopping 11 Tony Awards, including best musical, best book of a musical and best original score. 

The Hamilton Mixtape now allows the show's large fan base to appreciate the music in a whole new way, with many well-known artists covering the hit songs.

For those that want to immediately sing along with the newest songs, have no fear, you can learn them all below (lyrics via Genius):

"These are the times that try men's souls.

Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph."
