Karaoke just got a lot more satisfying. The Hamilton Instrumentals, featuring the backing tracks of every song featured on the Tony- and Pultizer-winning musical’s cast recording, was released June 30. Lin-Manuel Miranda made the surprise announcement alongside The Roots, Stro Elliot, and Tony nominee Jonathan Groff in a digital #Ham4Ham video; watch above.
The announcement comes days after the release of the official music video for “Immigrants (We Get the Job Done)” from The Hamilton Mixtape. The video was in conjunction with the launch of the #Ham4All campaign, which raises funds and awareness for the Immigrants: We Get the Job Done Coalition.
The campaign encourages participants to record themselves singing a snippet of the Hamilton score, donate to the coalition, and challenge others to do so; the newly released instrumental tracks—featuring Alex Lacamoire's Tony-winning orchestrations—will surely be featured in several forthcoming #Ham4All videos.
The Hamilton Instrumentals can be streamed on Apple Music and Spotify and is available for purchase on iTunes. For more information, click here.
