Hamilton gets the Rockabye Baby treatment

Now you can send your little one off to sleep with the lilting tones of the Hamilton soundtrack.

The Broadway hit is the latest release from Rockabye Baby, which has turned everything from Beyonce to Coldplay into soothing lullabies.

The eight-track album includes Alexander Hamilton and My Shot but with what’s describes as a more harmonious feel to each song.

While the Broadway production is filled with grand energy, “the sweeping percussion, rapid-fire rapping and soaring singing are transformed using marimbas, glockenspiels, wood blocks, and a more delicate percussion” on this set, according to a press release.

“Hamilton is a phenomenon,” says Lisa Roth, Vice President and Creative Director of CMH Label Group. “Actually, what’s a word that means something bigger than a phenomenon? Supernatural? When folks on our social media and personal friends started asking for a lullaby version, I couldn’t wait to oblige. Its hip-hop anthems are beyond Broadway and perfect for Rockabye Baby. Not to mention, I was raised on musical theater. Having the opportunity to mix Rockabye Baby with a Broadway smash was personally pure pleasure.”

The album is out now.
