Sometimes Friday seems like a lifetime away but then Peter Gabriel goes and unveils a previously unreleased track and the weekend seems like a total afterthought. Gabriel combines with seven other artists for this week’s midweek playlist. Don’t worry, you’re going to make it through.

1. Future (feat. Miley Cyrus and Mr. Husdon) – “Real and True”
Atlanta-based singer/rapper Future was featured on Miley Cyrus’ latest “Bangerz” and now the queen of relevancy returns the favor. On “Real and True,” they sing about the trillest of love.

2. Broken Bells – “Holding On For Life”
Things have been quiet for the duo of James Mercer and Danger Mouse since the two debuted as Broken Bells in 2010. “Holding On For Life” is a falsetto-laced groover that oddly traces to The Bee Gees. Can’t say it isn’t smooth though.

3. Bipolar Sunshine – “Drowning Butterflies”
Manchester-based pop newcomer Bipolar Sunshine has given nothing but promising tastes so far in his young career. Drowning Butterflies is a silky and catchy R&B track that has both vintage and progressive appeal.

4. Porches – “Townie Blunt Guts”
The slacker-pop of New York’s Porches has been a hit this year, especially with the band’s release of “Slowdance in the Cosmos.” This latest track has a carelessly awesome hook, making it a bit of a guilty anthem.

5. Juan Wauters – “Water”
Juan Wauters is the man at the front of Brooklyn-based garage band The Beets but now Wauters is picking up an acoustic and releasing a solo album on buzzy label Captured Tracks. “Water” is the first single, and the Uruguay-born songwriter puts heavy words behind a gentle, accented voice.

6. Peter Gabriel – “Courage”
The former Genesis vocalist-turned-solo superstar brings us a new tune that actually isn’t so new. “Courage” is an unearthed outtake from Gabriel’s hit 1986 album “So.” It’s a jam that Vampire Weekend fans, among others, could definitely wrap their heads around.

7. Mapei – “Don’t Wait (Kingdom Remix)”
Rhode Island-born Mapei now resides in Stockholm and releases soulful dance-pop showcasing rich vocal harmonies. Here, LA-based producer Kingdom remixes her breakout hit, giving it even greater dance floor appeal.

8. Doug Tuttle – “Turn This Love”
Doug Tuttle may look familiar to locals as the front man of psych-rock collective MMOSS. Tuttle is now releasing his debut solo album on Jan. 28 on Trouble in Mind Records. First single “Turn This Love” clocks in at over six minutes and is soaked in plenty of Krautrock-y guitar haze.
