Last year, we wrote about the wonderful new musical that’s swept the U.S. and the rest of the theater world: HAMILTON (the videos are no longer available)

Now it’s been remixed into a fabulous compilation album!

And actually, in 2009, Lin-Manuel Miranda (the writer of the play) began a project entitled The Hamilton Mixtape that would eventually transform into the 2015 Broadway musical Hamilton.

During the development of the musical production, Miranda frequently communicated that a “mixtape” of select songs from the show’s score was being recorded.

On November 3, 2016, Miranda announced on Twitter that the mixtape was complete and would be released on December 2, 2016. Preorders for the album helped skyrocket the album to number one on the Billboard 200 chart.

It marks the largest sales in a week for a compilation album since Cruel Summer by GOOD Music in 2012, and is the first compilation album to reach number one since Now 50 in 2014.

In a tweet on November 9, 2016, Miranda implied that the album released on December 2 would only be the first volume, with a Volume 2 coming shortly after. That can only be good news to our ears.

The mixtape album features a lot of our favorite artists, including Regina Spektor, Sia, Dessa, and Francis and The Lights, all of whom we’ve written about previously:
