Loveless Fascination is the fourth album by the AOR/Melodic Rock band Starship. It is also the first studio album in over 20 years by his lead vocalist Mickey Thomas.

Loveless Fascination was produced by longtime Foreigner bassist Jeff Pilson, who was the main songwriter on the new Starship album, and helped contribute a harder edge to the band's sound. Frontman Mickey Thomas says "It's been a long time coming. With each passing year, the bar was raised higher and higher for this album. I'd be lying if I didn't tell you the expectations caused me a few sleepless nights".

All tracks produced and engineered by Jeff Pilson at Pilsound Studios in Santa Clarita, CA, mixed and mastered by Wyn Davis at Total Access Recording Studios in Redondo Beach, CA, except "You Never Know" and "Nothin' Can Keep Me From You" produced by Mickey Thomas engineered and mixed by Vinnie Castaldo at The Tone Factory in Las Vegas, NV.

"You Never Know" is a Richard Page co-composition and "Nothin' Can Keep Me from You" was written by Diane Warren for Detroit Rock City (film) and previously recorded by Kiss.
