Loveless Fascination is the fourth album by Starship. As the first album of new material released by the band since 1989's Love Among the Cannibals, this is the first album by the band to feature only Mickey Thomas from the band's original line-up; as well as the only album by the band to feature any of the featured members' other than Thomas himself.

Loveless Fascination was produced by longtime Foreigner bassist Jeff Pilson, who was the main songwriter on the album, and helped contribute a harder edge to the band's sound. Frontman Thomas said "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 were produced and engineered by Jeff Pilson at Pilsound Studios in Santa Clarita, CA, as well as being mixed and mastered by Wyn Davis at Total Access Recording Studios in Redondo Beach, except "You Never Know" and "Nothin' Can Keep Me from You", which were produced by Mickey Thomas and engineered and mixed by Vinnie Castaldo at The Tone Factory in Las Vegas.

"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 and previously recorded by Kiss.
