Nexterday is an album released by former lead singer and songwriter of The Cars, Ric Ocasek.

The album boasts a more DIY sound than previous albums, having been partially recorded in Ocasek's home studio with Ocasek playing many of the instruments himself.[2] Musicians featured in his 1982 debut solo album, Beatitude were used on Nexterday, including fellow ex-Cars keyboardist Greg Hawkes, bassist Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains, drummer/programmer Stephen George and guitarist Roger Greenawalt.[3][4] "Silver" was Ocasek's musical tribute to Benjamin Orr.
