"More Love" is pop vocalist Feargal Sharkey's first single of 1988 and lead single from his second album Wish. The single had a music video created for promotion. The b-side for the single "A Breath of Scandal" was exclusive to the single, written and produced by Sharkey himself.

The single was written by a member of Tom Petty's band, Benmont Tench, who wrote Sharkey's previous 1986 hit single You Little Thief in response to Sharkey's 1985 hit single A Good Heart, written by Maria McKee, based on her relationship Tench. Like "You Little Thief", this singles lyrical meaning refers to jealousy.

The single peaked just outside the top 40 in the UK, peaking at #44.[1]

The CD version of the single featured Sharkey's UK number one hit from 1985 "A Good Heart".
