May the Fourth be with you, Hamilton fans.

In celebration of Star Wars Day, Lin-Manuel Miranda brought a special guest out for Wednesday afternoon’s Ham4Ham show: director J.J. Abrams.

As Miranda reminded the crowd before introducing Abrams, he penned the cantina music heard in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Abrams then stepped out onto the steps of the Richard Rodgers Theatre and the pair told the story of how Miranda ended up composing the tune.

Miranda and Abrams then performed the track together, which is called “Jabba Flow” and is also now available to download from iTunes and StarWars.com.
