Everlasting is a 1987 RIAA Gold-certified album by American singer Natalie Cole. She returned to Capitol Records via Manhattan Records. Released on June 14, 1987, the album is considered Cole's commercial comeback. The album features production by duo The Calloways who contributed to "Jump Start", the pure pop crossover cover of Bruce Springsteen's "Pink Cadillac", which reached the Billboard Hot 100 Top 10, and the hit, "I Live for Your Love".

Also included are the Bacharach and David songs "In My Reality" and "Split Decision" along with a cover of "When I Fall in Love", bringing her another step closer to tapping into her father Nat King Cole's era of the Great American Songbook.
