The song will be featured on the group's upcoming studio album, Loveless Fascination, which will be released on September 17.
"It's Not the Same as Love" finds Thomas and Starship mixing a harder-edged and more modern sound with the melodic, arena-ready rock that made the group so popular in the 1980s. The song arrives at radio stations today.
Loveless Fascination will be the first studio effort from Starship since 1989's Love Among the Cannibals. The new album was produced by Foreigner/ex-Dokken member Jeff Pilson, who also was the project's main songwriter.
