2017 is here. While 2016 was a year most people were happy to leave in the dust, it did give us a strong crop of albums, songs and new artists.

Fortunately, 2017 isn't looking too shabby so far. There are a number of rumored and confirmed releases we're excited about at Billboard, and on the new Must-Hear Music podcast, Joe Lynch, Jason Lipshutz and Natalie Weiner discuss what's in the works for 2017.

From Sampha to Lorde to Niall Horan to Harry Styles to Little Big Town to Sam Hunt to Nicki Minaj, we discuss albums we can't wait to hear and the artists we're hoping drop new music in 2017.

Listen to the 2017 preview episode of the Must-Hear Music podcast below and let us know what you're looking forward to (and what we should discuss on future podcasts) on Twitter.
