Liverpool is Frankie Goes to Hollywood's second and last studio album, released in October 1986 (see 1986 in music). It would be the band's final album of all-new material, and lead singer Holly Johnson would leave the band following the corresponding world tour, followed by a flurry of lawsuits from ZTT.

The album was a commercial disappointment compared to the band's previous effort, charting generally low at #5. It did, however, hit #7 on the Austrian and Swiss music charts and #8 in Norway.

The cover photo was different depending on what format was purchased (LP, cassette, or compact disc).
