Everything's Eventual is the debut, and only, album by the duo Appleton who were formerly part of All Saints. Three singles have been released from the album: "Fantasy" (UK #2), "Don't Worry" (UK #5) and "Everything Eventually" (UK #38).
The album is named after the Stephen King short story collection Everything's Eventual, since Natalie Appleton is a great admirer of him. The album was initially to be named Aloud but the name was changed after the arrival of then labelmates and Popstars: The Rivals winners Girls Aloud. The album and singles performed reasonably well on the UK charts; however Appleton signed with Polydor on a major record deal and the label thought that 80,000 CDs sold in the UK and Europe was too little for their contract. This eventually led to Appleton being dropped by Polydor and signing to Concept Music.

The "Fantasy" video is set during a performance in a bar and features stage Natalie diving into the audience, originally Nicole was supposed to do the stage dive but she chickened out at the last moment - with the excuse that they didn't put down the mattress - and her sister had to show her how it was done. They didn't have an idea for the song except that they wanted to do it live and recorded it on the spot. There is another version of the video with an alternate ending, showing Natalie & Nicole walking down a subway after the gig discussing the fight that breaks out in the video.
The "Don't Worry" video is shot with Natalie and Nicole Appleton playing with a magic chair which can bend a long way without falling. Near the end of the video Natalie appears to have Nicole Appleton in a head lock.
The "Everything Eventually" video is set in Primrose Hill park, London on a beautiful Spring day with Natalie and Nicole Appleton having fun. It was said that on this video shoot Natalie injured herself on some of the equipment used for the special effects and ended up with a bandaged arm, but this was actually due to an accident involving a champagne glass on a night out in Liverpool. Evidence of her injured arm can be seen in various promotional interviews and performances done for the single.
