Restless Heart is the ninth studio album recorded by Whitesnake. This was their first new studio album since 1989's Slip of the Tongue. The CD remains unreleased in the U.S. This album was to be a David Coverdale album but record company pressure forced it to be released under the "David Coverdale & Whitesnake" moniker.

The album charted at number 34 on the UK Albums Chart.[2]

Coverdale would go on to release another version of "Too Many Tears" on his next studio album, Into the Light.
