Hamilton's Hamildrops is a project Lin-Manuel Miranda started in December 2017; one track was released during every month of 2018 (except July). It serves as the sequel to The Hamilton Mixtape; and the songs in Hamildrops are inspired by the Hamilton the musical. 

Similar to the Mixtape, each track features different collaborations by both Broadway actors/actresses and independent artists. Hamildrops also explores different genres of music as well as political issues.

Lin-Manuel Miranda announced the release of Hamildrops in a Twitter thread[1] on December 14, 2017, the day before the release of the first song "Ben Franklin's Song" by The Decemberists.
