Different is debut solo-album released in 1989 by Thomas Anders,[2] who first attained success as the lead vocalist for Modern Talking in the mid-'80s. The album was recorded in London at Alan Parsons' studio and was produced by Gus Dudgeon (Elton John) & Alan Tarney (a-ha). It features a cover of Chris Rea's Fool (If You Think It's Over).

It's an extravagant album, featuring a legion of songwriters and session musicians. The album boasted the hit Love Of My Own and became a big success for Anders. Other singles were Soldier and One Thing.

The album was re-released twice by EastWest Records in 1991 and 1998.
