Update: Warner Music Group has released two tracks from the Hamilton Mixtape, one of which is Clarkson's take on "It's Quiet Updown." You can listen to it below.
Original story: America can't get enough of Hamilton, the revolutionary musical that has taken the country by storm. It's dominated award shows, controlled late night TV and wormed its way into the brain of everybody that's listened to it.
So the news that we'll be getting even more Hamilton, in the form of a mixtape, is wonderful.
Hamilton creator (and original Hamilton actor) Lin-Manuel Miranda tweeted the news Thursday morning. Soon after, #HamiltonMixtape was trending nationwide on Twitter.
The track list is worth getting excited about. In addition to Miranda, a wide variety of musical stars will be contributing to remixed versions of popular Hamilton songs. You've got Usher performing "Wait for It," Wiz Khalifa sings "Washington's By Your Side," Alicia Keys takes on "That Would Be Enough," Regina Spektor handles "Dear Theodosia" (with Ben Folds) and more.
Among the star-studded list is Burleson's own Kelly Clarkson, who apparently will be doing a rendition of "It's Quiet Uptown."
Here's what that song sounds like in the musical:
And here's Clarkson's version:
Pre-orders for the Hamilton Mixtape begin tomorrow, Nov. 4. The album releases on December 2.
