The Must Hear Music Podcast featuring new music from Macklemore, One Direction, FKA Twigs and more!

This week's Must-Hear Music podcast features a few firsts: One Direction's "Drag Me Down," their first track since Zayn Malik peaced out, and "Growing Up," the first new song from Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' upcoming album. The latter features Ed Sheeran and is about Mack's newborn daughter. Awww.

In the less sugary-sweet world, we listen to FKA Twigs' sonic collage "Figure 8" and Danny Brown's skeptical look at fame "Worth It" (produced by Clams Casino).

Plus, we talk about Prince's old-school "Stare," V V's schizophrenic dance track "Shift," and "Secrets" from pop-punk outfit State Champs. And for the Must-Hear Throwback Track, we look at 2005 indie faves Art Brut.
