Night Calls is the 13th full-length studio album by British rock/soul singer Joe Cocker, and was released in the UK in October 1991, with a US release using an alternate tracklist and cover in July 1992.

The album contained Five Women, a track written by Prince (Prince later released his original version of the track as 5 Women on the 1999 album The Vault... Old Friends 4 Sale). The song was re-recorded by Joe Cocker's band, and has no musical input from Prince.

The album produced four singles, Feels Like Forever, I Can Hear The River, Night Calls, and Unchain My Heart (connected with the album reissue). The album reached number 25 on the UK Gallup Album Chart, but only reached number 111 on the US Pop Chart when released there.

Prince also offered the 1991 version of Old Friends 4 Sale for use on the album, but Cocker declined.
