New York — Former U.S. president Barack Obama appears on a reworked song by Lin-Manuel Miranda originally from the Broadway hit Hamilton.

Released Friday, One Last Time (44 Remix) features Obama reciting a passage from George Washington's farewell address.

The song also features vocals from Tony nominee Christopher Jackson, who played Washington in Hamilton. The track was produced by Grammy-winning gospel singer BeBe Winans and Tony and Grammy winner Alex Lacamoire.

Miranda performed his song Alexander Hamilton at the White House in 2009 when Obama was in office. He went on to write Hamilton, which hit Broadway in 2015 and became a cultural phenomenon, winning 11 Tonys, a Pulitzer Prize and a Kennedy Center Honour.

Miranda returned to the White House to perform One Last Time in 2017 in a farewell to Obama.
