A Decemberists-style song about Ben Franklin drops at midnight (Dec. 15).
Lin-Manuel Miranda was one of the first celebs to try out the new Twitter Threads feature to drop some major, major news on Thursday (Dec. 14). The Hamilton creator used the one-year anniversary of the release of The Hamilton Mixtape to announce that the set's long-promised sequel is probably not coming, but he's still determined to provide Hamil-heads with tons of new material over the next year.
"A year ago this month we released The Hamilton Mixtape. It was the culmination of so many dreams come true," he tweeted. "Every artist, every interpretation represented the original impulse I had for this story, even before this thing was a musical. I know I promised you a Hamilton Mixtape Vol. 2, but nothing's gonna match those songs in that order, beautifully sequenced by @jperiodBK, at that moment in December 2016."
