The Decemberists have teamed up with Lin-Manuel Miranda for the #HamilDrops project, which will share previously unreleased songs by Miranda related to his hit musical Hamilton. The first offering is "Ben Franklin's Song," which features lyrics by Miranda and music by The Decemberists' frontman Colin Meloy and the band. As Miranda explained in a series of Twitter posts, he wrote some "Decemberists-esque lyrics for a Ben Franklin tune, but never set 'em to music" and sent them to Meloy. Listen below.
