Lin-Manuel Miranda's "A Very Good Day" from Working musical cast recording: exclusive first listen
The London cast recording will be released next month
Ahead of the release of the production's official cast recording, the London production of Stephen Schwartz's Working has released a first listen to Lin-Manuel Miranda's ''A Very Good Day".
The song, which was added to the musical in 2009 when Schwartz revised his score for the show, is being released digitally for the first time with this new original London cast recording, which is now available to pre-order ahead of its release on 2 March.
It features Liam Tamne and Siubhan Harrison, who both starred in the show's revival production, which ran at Southwark Playhouse last year. It follows a group of ordinary American citizens often overlooked by society.
Miranda once described the song as one of his favourite songs.
"A Very Good Day" is one my favorite songs I ever wrote, and you can only see it in this new production of Working. I hope you go.— Lin-Manuel Miranda (@Lin_Manuel) December 13, 2012
As well as the recording, "A Very Good Day" will be performed live at the WhatsOnStage Award this coming Sunday, where the musical is also nominated for Best Off-West End Production.
The album is the first recording of Working released since the original Broadway cast recording was released 40 years ago.
Pre-order the digital album on Amazon and on iTunes and receive a free copy of "It's An Art", another track from the recording.
