Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda has released a never-before-heard demo track that he wrote — and cut — from the show that he says director Thomas Kail hasn’t even heard.
The song features Alexander Hamilton asking President George Washington for advice on the impending scandal involving his affair with Maria Reynolds.
“Wish I could send you peace of mind via this app,” Miranda said on Twitter “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 Kail.”
Miranda sings both parts on the track, but he said it was “funnier” to picture him and Christopher Jackson — who originated the part of Washington in the Broadway production — singing the song.
