Lin-Manuel Miranda's New 'Hamildrops' Release Is a Collab With Ben Platt: Listen

The latest Hamildrops track is “Found/Tonight,” a collaboration between Ben Platt and Lin-Manuel Miranda which carries a powerful social message and raises money for a good cause. 

Platt, the Grammy and Tony-winning singer and actor, teased the collab which he described as a “gorgeous mashup” of Hamilton’s “The Story of Tonight” and “You Will Be Found” from Dear Evan Hansen. He completed his Instagram caption with the hashtag #GunControlNow.

Alex Lacamoire arranged the song, proceeds from which go to the March For Our Lives initiative. "Even when the dark comes crashing through/When you need a friend to carry you/When you're broken on the ground/You will be found," Platt and Miranda sing. 

"Found/Tonight” is the fourth release from the Hamildrops project, which gave us a Decemberists song about Ben Franklin and “Weird Al” Yankovic’s “The Hamilton Polka.”

"Found/Tonight" dropped at midnight and can be streamed in full below.
